He often sketched his father, mother, sister, uncle, son, art dealer, himself, and Marie-Hortense Fiquet. Cézanne executed several painted and sketched portraits of his son, Paul Jr. One of these portraits will come come to auction with Nye & Company. It captures Paul Jr.’s childish features in three distinct drawings. One side of the piece bears a single sketch, while the other side has two.

The large-scale oil on canvas depicts the old fort at Matanzas Bay in St. Augustine, Florida. Accompanying the painting is a letter from the artist to Charles Shultz.
