Here’s a way to spend a few hours in a museum without getting sore feet. A visual feast of 230 richly colored paintings, Paul Cezanne: Portrait of My World doubles as a cinematic tour of Cezanne’s life — based on his letters and diaries — ”narrated” by the artist (actor Michael Lonsdale). Each of the works can be scrutinized in close-up, so the seemingly gray background of Still Life With Onions actually shimmers with subtle blues, greens, and pinks, while a portrait of Madame Cezanne vibrates with the fragmented, architectonic planes of color that inspired the Cubism of Picasso and Braque. There’s also a time line of the artist’s life that affirms the creative vibrancy of late-19th-century France. Inviting and informative, Portrait of My World makes a nice companion to the current Cezanne retrospective in Philadelphia. B+
