Cezanne's Birthday Google Doodle

19th January saw the second Google Doodle of the year 2011 with this date is contributed to the birthdate of Paul Cezanne (January 19, 1839 - October 22, 1906) which was a French artist. His work was a based on the transition from the 19th century conception of artistic endeavor to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century.
Just like other recent doodles, it spells the Google name in an abstract way which is translated by the objects in the paint which symbolized the paint work as such produced by Cezanne.
This is how we can spot the Google logo in the doodle. As usual, the main Google color of BRYBGR can clearly be seen. Noticed the motif on the blue cloth below the jar which forms the capital letter G. Next is the 2 plates carrying cherries and peaches which form the double O. The other 2 plates with blue lining form the blue small letter G. The green vase at the back represent the letter L and the red lining on the last jar with its mouthopen shows the form of letter E.
That is all for the Cezanne's 172nd Birthday Google Doodle. Below are some of Cezanne's paintwork for your view pleasure.

The picture up there is a beauty. Apart from that, it is also a winner. This picture actually won the 1st prize at the World Press Photo 2010 for the category Nature-Singles. This is not an ordinary picture as the shot was taken underwater capturing the Kingfisher while it snaps the little fish. This picture entitled 'Hunting Kingfisher'was recorded by Joe Petersburger, a National Geographic photographer who based in Hungary. Beside this picture, he had taken several other pictures of Kingfisher in action.
