Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Cezanne is renowned as the father of modern art and the most outstanding of the Post-Impressionist artists. This clearly written, authoritative biography covers his childhood in Aix-en-Provence as the son of a wealthy family, his education and friendship with famed author Emile Zola, his determination to study art despite his father's opposition, and his suspicious, difficult temperament. It also includes fine background material on the Romantic, Impressionistic, and Post-Impressionistic art movements in France and incorporates elements of nineteenth century French history. The artistic setting is enriched and explained by encompassing material on artists such as Renoir, Delacroix, Manet, Degas, Pissarro, Monet, van Gogh, and Matisse. The excellent illustrations include maps, prints, vintage and modern black and white and color photographs, and reproductions of paintings. Timelines for each period of the artist's life, a glossary, a list of principal museums and galleries displaying Cezanne's works with their e-mail addresses, and an index add to the work's usefulness. It is part of the "Artists in Their Time" series. 2003, Franklin Watts,
