Both Picasso and Matisse honored French artist Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) as "the father of us all," praise that demonstrates the key role that this Impressionist played for succeeding generations. Given that importance, it is especially pleasing to welcome Alex Danchev's Cézanne: A Life, the first major biography of the artist in decades. To the project, the British author brings a bibliography that includes a life of George Braque that was lauded for its "rare and admirable precision." In his present subject, he himself sees the exemplary artist-creator of the modern period, a painter who seems to have been waiting for a biography such as this. Editor's recommendation.
