Paul Cézanne was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavour to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne can be said to form the bridge between late 19th century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. The line attributed to both Matisse and Picasso that Cézanne "is the father of us all" cannot be easily dismissed.

Paul Walker, best known for playing Brian O’Connor in the Fast and Furious movie franchise, perished in a tragic car accident on November 30, 2013 at 40 years old. I hope that his legacy will extend beyond acting and fast cars… He was a father, a fan of all things marine biology, and a humanitarian. In March 2010, Walker went to Constitucion, Chile to offer his help and support to the people injured in the 8.8 magnitude earthquake that struck on February 27. Later that same year, he flew with his humanitarian aid team, REACH OUT Worldwide, to Haiti to lend a helping hand to the 2010 Haiti earthquake victims. Paul Walker seemed like an all-around good guy who was taken far too soon. He touched many people and the makeshift memorials around the country are proof.

R.I. P. Paul Walker.

It should be noted that the famous artists Paul Cezanne and Paul Gauguin are NOT impressionists - they are POST-impressionists. Cezanne did paint in the impressionistic style for a brief period, but became dissatisfied with the primary dictum of Impressionism (that painting is primarily a reflection of visual perception), and ended up paving the way for 20th century modernism (Fauvism, Cubism etc.). Gauguin was initially schooled in Impressionism, but his artwork evolved as he sought the "primitive" and "exotic" (Primitivism, Symbolism), cementing his place in the post-impressionistic sphere of art.
