Paul Cézanne (US: /seɪˈzæn/ or UK: /sɪˈzæn/; French: [pÉ”l sezan]; 19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavor to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne's often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. The paintings convey Cézanne's intense study of his subjects.Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_C%C3%A9zanne

Johannes Vermeer (/vÉ™rˈmɪər/;[3] Dutch: [joːˈɦɑnÉ™s fÉ™rˈmeːr];[4] October 1632 – December 1675) was a Dutch painter who specialized in domestic interior scenes of middle-class life. He was a moderately successful provincial genre painter in his lifetime but evidently was not wealthy, leaving his wife and children in debt at his death, perhaps because he produced relatively few paintings.Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Vermeer
