Was Cézanne an Impressionist?



Cézanne joined the ‘impressionist’ expositions only two times:

At the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition Cézanne showed 3 works.
Zola (1874/04/18)  praises his youth friend for his ‘great originality’. Prouvaire (=Toloza;1874/04/20) mentions his ‘over-exclusive love of yellow’ (R2,p126;R87,p234/5).
At the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition Cézanne showed 16+1hc=17 works.
