Vincent Van Gogh sought a method of capturing the underlying structure of any subject matter. His eventual triumph derived from a revolutionary new approach to color and to perspective. His paintings were often derided by the critics, but by the end of his life, his genius was beginning to be appreciated. Cézanne's influence on 20th century artists was so great that he is now referred to as the "Father of Modern Painting."
