Om boka

Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) is arguably one of the most important artists in the development of modern art, being as he was a key bridge between the stirrings of airy abstraction in Impressionism and the solid redefinition of space espoused by Cubism. Exhibiting with - but often apart - from the Impressionists, always striving to please the establishment and yet ultimately following his own path to find new ways of representing visual experience, his work is suffused with life and colour but also retains its power in the knowledge of its influence. This gorgeous book introduces the reader to Cezanne through an accessible discussion of the artist in context, his life, work and legacy, followed by a curated selection of full-page reproductions of his most representative and impressive work, from his many portraits and still lifes to his figure groups (the iconic bathers) and landscapes (his precious Montagne Sainte-Victoire).

Born in Aix-en-Provence, Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) was to feel the pull of his birth land and return there to paint his most iconic work. Educated in Aix, he studied drawing before briefly making an effort to follow his father's wishes by attending law school. Inevitably, however, he yielded to his vocation and left for Paris in 1861, where he was to strike up a crucial relationship with Camille Pissarro. His work was exhibited at the first Salon des Refuses in 1863, and despite his regular submissions he only ever succeeded in having one work accepted by the official Salon. He would move between Paris and Provence over the years, exhibiting twice with the Impressionists but not with success, eventually settling in his cherished south to focus on his own distinctive work.
