Interestingly, the sale was kept quiet at the time due to the threat to Detroit City owned artworks – the seller (the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House) was concerned that the high price of the Cezanne piece would have led to increased pressure on the city to give up its art collection due to the dire financial situation. The sale by the non-profit only came to light at the end of 2014, when tax paperwork showed that the painting, in the family collection since the middle of the 20th century, had been sold.

Montagne Sainte-Victoire features in a lot of Cézanne’s paintings; he could see it from where he lived. He was not the only artist to paint the mountain either, with Picasso and Kandinsky being two others of note. The mountain first made an appearance in a painting in the 1454 Coronation of the Virgin by Enguerrand Quarton! See more about Montagne Sainte-Victoire at
