Description: 
In the early 1880s the Cézanne family stabilized their residence in Provence where they remained, except for brief sojourns abroad, from then on. Cézanne's mature works are striking for their vivid palette, sensitive brushstrokes, and swirling, unstable compositions full of impetuosity and vigor that paved the way for the advent of Cubism and abstract painting. While this composition is serene, the oddly twisted body of the boy lends dynamism. (Source: Wikipedia; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page)
