0 Google Doodle Celebrates Paul Cezanne's Birthday

"Painting is damned difficult - you always think you've got it, but you haven't."
—PAUL CEZANNE (Jan. 19, 1839 – Oct. 22, 1906)

Paul Cezanne, Google Doodle
Jan. 19, 2011: The Google Doodle celebrating Paul Cezanne's 172nd birthday.
Today's Google Doodle is a colorful tribute to French Post-Impressionist Paul Cezanne. The artist was born 172 years ago today — an arbitrary occasion to commemorate, but a lovely change from the conventional doodle nonetheless.

Interestingly, the Google team produced this masterpiece by first creating a traditional still-life oil painting in the style of Cezanne, and then translated that image using digital technology.

Think you can out-Doodle Google? The search engine just launched its annual Doodle 4 Google contest for K-12 students. This year's theme is "What I'd like to do someday..." The winning Doodle will be featured on Google's homepage on May 20, 2011. Register here.
