Balthus: Works, Interviewsby Poligrafa, Mieke Bal, Costanzo Costantini
From the mid-1860s to the mid-1880s two artistic legends, Paul Cézanne and Camille Pissarro, executed numerous paintings side by side as they worked in Pontoise and Auvers. This book was published in conjunction with an exhibition of 74 paintings and 8 drawings that embody the core of the two artists' collaboration and explores their artistic relationship in detail. The artists' dynamic interaction began with their first meeting at the Académie Suisse, Paris, circa 1861, and continued through much of their careers. To examine the techniques that Cézanne and Pissarro each adopted in response to the other's work, the exhibition and book juxtapose related works by both artists, reuniting many of them for the first time since their creation. The friendship between Cézanne and Pissarro was of considerable importance within the development of early Modernism. An essay by Joachim Pissarro discusses this fascinating interchange and offers new insights into both the shared and the distinctive elements of the two artists' aesthetic sensibility.
