Cézanne by Himself Drawings, Paintings, Writings

Author(s): Richard Kendall (ed.)


This volume on the life and work of Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) brings together for the first time a diverse and revealing selection of material, drawn from 800 paintings and 2,000 drawings and watercolors, and also from his correspondence and the memoirs of his friends. Despite being one of the most influential nineteenth-century artists, Cézanne was far from being a conventional hero, and was ill at ease in the cafes and salons of the Paris art world. His work shows a classical conern with form and structure which sets it apart from the Impressionist mainstream, and led a subsequent generation of art historian to dub hime the first 'Post-Impressionist'. This book provides fascinatin evidence of the artist's friendships and family life and through his own writings and the reminiscences of his contemporaries show the paradoxes and contradictions of his personality.
