Google celebrates Paul Cézanne
To celebrate the 172nd anniversary of Paul Cézanne ‘s birthday (January 19th, 1839), Google designed a very beautiful Doodle, inspired by the famous painter’s still life paintings. A Doodle is a creative design of the Google logo on the web search engine homepage.
Hundreds of doodles
The first Doodle was created in 1988, to indicate Google founders’ participation to the famous Burning Man festival. Since then, hundreds of doodles have been designed. You can all find them here : http://www.google.com/logos/.
