An adult reader can still learn from even these short bio pieces. Cezanne was clearly a troubled person. When a children's book mentions several times that he could be violent and moody, that he spent more and more time living alone, and that he was embittered by the time he found fame in the 1890s then you know there's something going on there.
I also learnt that the beautiful Musee Rodin which I was lucky enough to visit last year, was a former Hotel, where Rodin lived from 1908. That makes it even more special. The grounds of Musee Rodin are astonishing. Sadly, we ran out of time during our visit, and didn't get to go inside the Musee building.
I'll be very keen to make another visit to the Musee Rodin on my next visit to Paris, which is a bit surprising as I wasn't all that enthused about seeing it before we went. Mr Wicker was very keen so I went along for the sake of marital harmony, and I absolutely fell in love with the place.

Which really makes this post about Paris in July, even though I tried to make it about something else.
