From Musee d'Orsay, Paris:
During 1894, Gustave Geffroy wrote several articles praising Cézanne's painting. To show his gratitude, Cézanne offered to paint the critic's portrait in the spring of 1895. The writer taken as a model by a painter he was supporting was an established genre. There is the portrait of Zola by Manet (1868, Musée d'Orsay), and that of Duranty by Degas (1879, Glasgow, The Burrell Collection), where a similar motif of bookshelves can be seen. But unlike these two examples, it is clear in this case that Cézanne and Geffroy were not well acquainted.
