Paul Cézanne's 'Bathers' - 1900/05

"... a feverish height rising desire for the new and the other, for a spiritualized world in contrast to the materialistic of the citizen, this call for sustainability and order, for security and freedom, for ideals and ideas, this opposition to bourgeois reality and at the same time escape from capitalist reality with its propriety of all living and its bonds, with its dehumanization of all humanitarian values, with its increasingly violent and extended problems, this opposition to an outer world and this flight to an inner world, is characteristic and stimulating at the same time." - Opposition of Abstract Art by K. Farner (1964 WB/ Cézanne 1904: father of the future painting, founder of a new platonic empire of the mind)
