Paul Cezanne, 1839-1906: Pioneer of Modernism by Ulrike Becks-Malorny

Divine apples and pears: Cézanne’s quest for “a harmony parallel to Nature”

He was the founding father of modern art, the grand master who pointed painting forward on its way from Impressionism to the 20th century: Paul Cézanne (1839–1906). In Paris, but above all in Provence, Cézanne quested tirelessly for “a harmony parallel to Nature”—discovering it in still lifes of apples, in bathers, or in the renowned landscapes of his beloved Montagne Sainte-Victoire. This book discusses this extraordinary artist’s major works and his theories of painting and color.
