Head to the National Portrait Gallery's Cézanne Portraits exhibition to survey more than 50 of the French artist's most important works, many of which are on show in the UK for the first time.

The long-awaited exhibition celebrates Paul Cézanne as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, demonstrating his unique portraiture style, as well as his huge influence on successive generations of artists.

Cézanne is often described as the artist who bridged the gap between Impressionism and Cubism, and these intimate portraits offer a unique insight into his process.

The exhibition displays vital images, such as Self-Portrait in a Bowler Hat, and draws portraits from collections all over the world. Each work helps to trace the development of the artist that both Matisse and Picasso described as "the father of us all".
