“[Cezanne] had no interest in what the world called success.”

“Cezanne was an obscure figure even when famous; he was secretive, frugal, unacquisitive; he would often go missing for weeks on end; his emotional life, such as it was, remained private and protected; and he had no interest in what the world called success.”

From “Cezanne: Does an Apple Move?” (Keeping an Eye Open/Essays on Art) by Julian Barnes, English, writer. Regarding the French painter Paul Cezanne.
