Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) 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.

"Pyramid of skulls" was created by Paul Cezanne in 1898-1900.Despite the stark realism and morbidity of the subject matter, the painting is very evocative. There are four human skulls shown in the painting, three of which face forward directly from the painting, giving the impression that they are staring at the viewer.The use of dark composition in this painting contrast with the skulls.
