But there's a lot of good evidence that [Cézanne's] distortions and artistic choices were intentional.

It's all talk! Cézanne couldn't draw, early on or later. He said one should use geometric figures but he had no knowledge of perspective. His fame is due to the fact that he was among the first to claim to produce art with no knowledge. He is the father of modern no-skill-realism. He is popular because he makes the work of most every art school inmates look like a masterpiece.
