Take a ride in Google's doodle world
This time also, Google paid tribute to the famous French artist and Post-Impressionist painter, Paul Cezanne on his 172nd birthday on Wednesday, Jan 19.
Cezanne's great work, one of his paintings has been chosen as the replacement of the today's doodle.
Like previous doodles the "painting" based logo mimics the shape of the letters that make up the usual logo, the g for instance is made up by a jug and cloth where as the two O's are made up by plates that follow a similar style to "Still Life with a curtain" and "Still life with an open drawer" which were both painted by Cezanne.
This time Google tried to capture the whole life of Paul Cezanne in its doodle as every minute information is available with the background of the logo. If anyone wants to learn more about the French artists and wants to take a glance at his works, just a mouse click on the doodle will reveal everything.
Cezanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. He has been described as a visionary who was ahead of his time, like many artists his work was not fully appreciated until well after he had died.
Cezanne's work demonstrates a mastery of design, colour, tone, composition and draftsmanship. His paintings convey his intense study of his subjects, a searching gaze and a dogged struggle to deal with the complexity of human visual perception.
