Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a splendidly illustrated monographic summary of the life and main works, with complete descriptive captions, of Cézanne.
“Cézanne, you see, is precisely a sort of Everlasting Father of painting. Cézanne is the master of all of us. Is his influence dangerous? What if it is? So much the worse for those without the strength to bear it!” (H. Matisse).
Aimed at informed but non-specialized readers, this book offers a monographic summary of the life and work of Cézanne.
The short introduction examines the circumstances that led to the emergence and evolution of the artist’s personality. This is followed by a veritable “guided tour” through an imaginary museum of his masterpieces, splendidly illustrated, with complete descriptive captions.
A small anthology of critical and documentary writings and an essential bibliography make the books in this series up-to-date tools for students and art lovers alike.
