From Fondation Beyeler, Switzerland:
The painting Bend of the road at the Top of the Chemin des Lauves shows a stretch of road just uphill from the studio the artist had set up for himself in 1902. Whereas the two forest scenes by Cézanne in the Fondation Collection have a loose, airy quality, here the paint is applied in thick impasto that more clearly accentuates the structure and gives the paint as a material an almost palpable feel.
