Cezanne

Overview

The veneration surrounding the French painter Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) for nearly a century has, paradoxically, contributed to the mystery of his genius. His work has been extensively analyzed, but in fundamental respects it remains misunderstood. As such it is ripe for the reexamination provided by this volume, published on the centenary of the artist's first one-man exhibition, which was mounted in Paris by Ambroise Vollard. More than 240 large colorplates, with commentaries, and 262 black-and-white ...

Overview

The veneration surrounding the French painter Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) for nearly a century has, paradoxically, contributed to the mystery of his genius. His work has been extensively analyzed, but in fundamental respects it remains misunderstood. As such it is ripe for the reexamination provided by this volume, published on the centenary of the artist's first one-man exhibition, which was mounted in Paris by Ambroise Vollard. More than 240 large colorplates, with commentaries, and 262 black-and-white illustrations of paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sketchbook pages represent all aspects of Cezanne's oeuvre. The book traces the full range of his stylistic evolution and explores the artist's preoccupation with several themes and motifs—Mont Sainte-Victoire, bathers, and still lifes. Also included is a comprehensive review of the critical response that the artist's work has evoked, during his life and after, by Francoise Cachin, Director of the Musees de France, and Joseph J. Rishel, who at the turn of the century, was Curator of European Painting at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Their extensive quotations from reviews, monographs, and journal articles by writers from Emile Zola to Meyer Schapiro offer readers the means to evaluate for themselves the many contradictory interpretations of Cezanne's legacy...."Cezanne" also includes the painter's own statements about art and other artists, a fully

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The curators of the most recent major exhibition of Cézanne's work present this catalogue with more than 600 reproductions spanning the artist's complete oeuvre. The accompanying commentary, which focuses on the development of the analytical treatment of Cézanne, features a wide assortment of original source material, including anecdotes by the artist himself.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This exemplary exhibition catalogue, published in conjunction with a major international Czanne retrospective, is a handsome tribute to the artist who revolutionized modern painting. The 258 color and 350 black-and-white reproductions of Czanne's (1839-1906) oil paintings, watercolors, drawings and sketchbook pages are splendid, and they are accompanied by lucid, insightful com- mentaries, authoritative yet refreshingly devoid of scholarly pretension. Many of the painter's own statements on art are included, as are excerpts from the writings of critics and art historians who have assessed his work from 1865 to the present. There is also an extensive chronology of the artist's life. Cachin is president of the National Museums of France; Cahn is archivist of the Muse d'Orsay in Paris; Loyrette is director of the Muse d'Orsay and Rishel is senior curator of European painting before 1900 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Library Journal
In the catalog to the Czanne exhibition showing in Paris, London, and Philadelphia, Director of the Muses de France Cachin, Philadelphia Museum of Art curator Joseph J. Rishel, and staff at the Muse d'Orsay have taken great care in presenting the multifaceted and enigmatic genius. The bulk of the book is taken up by over 175 color and many black-and-white reproductions of every piece in the show, segmented by decade and accompanied by informative essays authored by organizing committee members. The authors also provide a glimpse of the artist through his own words as well as many anecdotal commentaries and work by historical figures who knew him. The development of Czanne criticism is briefly traced from its early days to its present-day esteem for the artist. The chronology is detailed, illustrated, and authoritative. The book is a prelude to John Rewald's forthcoming and much-awaited The Paintings of Paul Czanne: A Catalogue Raisone (Abrams, 1996). As such, and as a record of the long overdue, large-scale retrospective, it is a worthwhile addition to all modern art and comprehensive collections.Ellen Bates, New York Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Donna Seaman
You may hesitate, as we did, at the sight of yet another book about Cezanne, but this handsomely produced retrospective volume is without question the grandest of them all. The superb reproductions (258 in the best color and crispest focus this reviewer has ever seen and 350 in rich black-and-white) document the artist's entire revolutionary oeuvre, from his earliest pencil drawings to his watercolors, sketchbooks, and magnificent paintings. The commentary, based on meticulous research by Cachin--curator, scholar, and president of the National Museums of France--and her esteemed colleagues, is of the highest order, penetrating and illuminating in its interpretations of the man, his work, and his enormous influence on modern art.
