In The Woods was painted between the years of 1897 and 1898. This painting shows a lot of Cézanne’s maturity as an artist and his development as an essential icon for the late 20th-century Impressionists. Often, it is said that he was the primary connection between the late 19th-century art and the new movements that happened during the 20th-century. He started creating a more representative art, but he deepened his studies on color and shape under the mentorship of Camille Pissarro. He then began to simplify forms and work the connection between a geometrically simplified version and what the eye sees. This painting is probably one of the best examples of this simplification, and the fact that it was produced so late in his career, shows the great input the years o studying landscapes and colors created in his technique.
This painting shows the middle of the woods, and the whole environment leads the viewer into feeling like they are looking at it from the inside. The tree trunks come off-panel. The tall grass is represented with thick brushstrokes of vivid green colors and is placed in the foreground.
The thin and long tree trunks were created with an interesting technique of light and shadow where the several tonalities of brown, along with the darkened background around them, create an aspect of a contour around the figures.
The background is completely blue, but it is composed of impressive little patches of several tones of blue, as well as some very light tones of brown and lilac.
The color palette is light and vivid. Yet, somehow, the artist creates the ominous atmosphere of the middle of the woods. Most of the painting is covered in blue and green patches, on a limited yet solid choice of hues.
The vertical layout and simplification of shapes destroy the idea of depth and perspective. However, the trunks on the background are thinner, as the leaves are darker, and thus the spectator can have a sensation of the portrayed enviroment
