Byddai Cézanne yn aml yn ymweld â bryniau l'Estaque, ychydig i'r Gorllewin o Marseilles. Daw'r olygfa hon ohonynt ar bapur wedi ei osod ar gynfas o'r cyfnod 1878-79 neu 1883-84. Erbyn 1885 yr oedd yn eiddo i Gauguin, a wnaeth gopi ohono mewn gouache gan synfyfyrio bod 'y llwybr troellog ar draws y tir toredig drwy'r coed ifanc yn ei atgoffa o'r llwybr unig a gerddodd Crist tuag at Fynydd yr Olewydd.' Mae'r cyfansoddiad eithradol wastad sydd wedi ei fynegi'n syml yn ein hatgoffa o sylw Cézanne fod tirwedd Provence 'fel cerdyn chwarae, toeon coch uwchben môr glas...Mae'r haul mor danbaid yma fel y bydd gwrthrychau i mi i'w gweld fel amlinellau...mewn glas, coch, brown a fioled...mae hynny i mi yn ymddangos fel y gwrthwyneb i fodelu.' Prynodd Gwendoline Davies y gwaith hwn ym Mharis ym 1918. Pan oedd ar ei fenthyg i Oriel Tate ym 1922, canmolwyd ef gan Roger Fry fel 'un o'r mwyaf o holl dirluniau Cézanne.'

Dear Astrid,
Thank you for your enquiry and interest in our artwork.
Yes we do have Gwendoline Davies’s receipt. She bought this painting and ‘Provençal Landscape’ from the dealer Bernheim Jeune for £2,750 in February 1918.
Gauguin’s wife Mette sold the painting to Danish collector Edvard Brandes when Gauguin went to Tahiti in 1891 leaving her with very little money. He tried to buy it back in 1894 but was unsuccessful. Gauguin’s gouache based on this painting is now in the Ny Carslberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen. Brandes later sold the painting to Baron Denis Cochin, from whom it was purchased by Bernheim Jeune.

Hello, I am studying this painting as part of my OU MA in art you have the bill of sale from when Gwendoline Davies bought it along with another Cezanne ? Also wondering where Gauguin's gouache is now ? And who did he sell or give Cezzanne's painting to ?
It is a fantastic work..we are lucky to have it in Wales !
Thankyou..any information much appreciated.

I bought a print of this wonderful picture on visit over thirty years ago. I will come when it is again on show. It hangs opposite my bed and I look at it every morning. There is always something new to see whether in the colours, the deep structure or the perfect wholeness of the picture. It's a great and moving picture, This morning I came across exactly the quote from Cezanne you use in Alex Danchev's new biography, which he cites as a letter from Cezanne to Pissarro in 1876. An exhibition setting these two great friends side by side (as the painted) would be wonderful but probably has already been done or would be hard to do (I'm only an amateur in such things). Whatever you do in the future with your Cezannes, they will remain a jewel in your great collection and I'll always be grateful I saw this one and bought the print (for 2 pounds I think) all that time ago.
