Paul Cézanne, French, 1839-1906. The Village of Gardanne (Le Village de Gardanne), 1885-1886.

In 1885, when Oller was back in Puerto Rico, his friend Paul Cézanne was home in his native Provence, experimenting with new representations of nature that looked toward abstraction. In The Village of Gardanne, Cézanne juxtaposed the blocky geometries of a southern French townscape with the curling organic forms of rolling hills and vegetation, shifting the planes of Gardanne’s angular roofs in anticipation of Cubist experiments in the early twentieth century.

In San Juan, meanwhile, Oller was painting social realist compositions to raise awareness of his economically disadvantaged Caribbean island, then still suffering from colonial abuse and neglect.

En 1885, cuando Oller había vuelto a Puerto Rico, su amigo Paul Cézanne se encontraba en su tierra nativa de Provence, experimantando con nuevas formas para representar la naturaleza que miraban a la abstracción. En El pueblo de Gardanne, Cézanne logró una yuxtaposición de las geometrías en bloque de un paisaje urbano del sur de Francia con las formas orgánicas rizadas de colinas ondulantes y de vegetación, transformando los planos de los techos angulares de Gardanne, en anticipación a los experimentos cubistas a inicios del siglo veinte.

Entretanto, en San Juan, Oller se encontraba pintando composiciones socialmente realistas para despertar conciencia de su isla caribeña desfavorecida económicamente, la cual en ese entonces aún sufría de abuso y negligencia colonial.
