'Les Grandes Baigneuses' by Paul Cezanne

Today’s Google’s ‘doodle’ commemorates the French artist Cezanne.

We found this wonderfully conservative newsreel from 1965 when The National Gallery in London purchased a Cezanne painting ‘Les Grandes Baigneuses’ for a shocking £500,000.

We love the jazzy soundtrack too, take a look:
