Overview

With essays by Roberta Bernstein, Yve-Alain Bois, Jean-François Chevrier, John Elderfield, John Golding, Christopher Green, Jennie Hirsh, Joop M. Joosten, Anabelle Kienle, Albert Kostenevich, Carolyn Lanchner, Mark D. Mitchell, Joseph J. Rishel, Katherine Sachs, Richard Shiff, Robert Storr, and Michael R. Taylor

The famous proclamation that Cézanne “is the father of us all” has been attributed to both Matisse and Picasso, and his influence has extended to a great diversity of artists thereafter. In this monumental book, a team of distinguished scholars offers the most comprehensive view to date on Cézanne’s vital role in shaping European and American art throughout the 20th century and into the 21st.

More than forty paintings and ten works on paper by Cézanne—many of his best-known and most admired—are juxtaposed throughout the catalogue with approximately 120 works by a range of modern and contemporary artists who found in Cézanne a central inspiration. They include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Fernand Léger, Brice Marden, Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, Liubov Popova, and Jeff Wall, as well as Picasso, Matisse, Johns, and Kelly. The essays offer insights into the “conversation” between Cézanne and each of these other artists, who stand on a par with his greatness. Among its many features, this book contains conceptual overviews by Richard Shiff and Robert Storr as well as an illustrated chronology.

Editorial Reviews

New York Review of Books

"Philadelphia''s resplendent exhibition and its fascinating catalog are a monument to the still powerful formulation of Clement Greenberg. . . . Cézanne''s paintings were a summa of his work that deserves a cum laude, and the array of modernist works was equally impressive."—Robert Herbert, New York Review of Books

Publishers Weekly
Starred Review.

Accompanying the Philadelphia Museum of Art's Spring 2009 exhibition, this book of prints and essays examines the influence of Cezanne, once called "the linchpin in the history of modernism," on 19 modern and post-modern artists. Essayists take many different approaches. Describing Cezanne as "not only the primary form maker of his era but also its primary form breaker," Robert Storr discusses the debt owed by Pop artists like Richard Hamilton. John Elderfield makes a compelling case for Cezanne's influence on the divergent work of Picasso, who said that "it's not what the artist does that counts, but what he is... Cezanne's anxiety-that's Cezanne's lesson." Other artists discussed include Gorky, Jasper Johns and Matisse (who called Cezanne "a sort of god of painting"). The book itself is beautiful, containing color reproductions of work by Cezanne and the 19 artists considered, plus a few more. An informative introduction traces Cezanne's influence across Europe, during his life and after, referring often to the 1895 exhibition which would have been viewed by many of the artists mentioned. This close examination, buttressed by gorgeous plates, makes this a standout volume on the popular artist.

Library Journal

This hefty catalog accompanying the show of the same name at the Philadelphia Museum of Art highlights CA©zanne's influence on a diverse group of established, emerging, and, in some cases, revered artists. Nineteen scholars, including the organizers of the show, have contributed essays that link a specific artist or artists to CA©zanne, discussing how his or her work extracts certain facets from the CA©zanne diamond mine. Chapters range from the expected ("CA©zanne and Matisse: From Apprenticeship to Creative Misreading") to the unusual ("CA©zanne and Giacometti: An Odd Couple"). Lengthening the thread of art history through the 20th century is the inclusion of post-World War II artists such as Ellsworth Kelly and, more recently, Brice Marden. A detailed, illustrated chronology introduces the text, which is fully footnoted and rich in 485 germane color reproductions as well as 85 in black and white. This massive undertaking will reward patient viewers with a more complete understanding of the depth and breadth of one of modern art's most important painters. For students in particular, it takes art history one notch back from Picasso and Matisse to CA©zanne. For all museum, academic, public, and special libraries.
