Overview

Though he spent much of his career in his native France, Paul Cézanne (1839–1906)––a stylistic innovator who constantly struggled to perfect his art––played a hugely influential role in modernism worldwide. This handsome book is the first to focus on Cézanne’s works and reputation in Britain, where he was a key figure in the great debate about modernism that took place in the early years of the 20th century.
Published on the centenary of his death, Cézanne in Britain features beautiful reproductions of forty works that cover the full range of his oeuvre––paintings, drawings, watercolors, and prints––along with accompanying descriptive entries. Essays trace his artistic development from its beginnings in the 1860s until his death, providing a chronological overview of his career and stylistic evolution. They also address the fascinating role British dealers, collectors, museums, and critics played in establishing his reputation domestically and abroad. A chronology and full list of Cézanne’s works in British collections complete this important survey.
