Product Description
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 Cezanne (1839-1906). In Paris, but above all in Provence, he 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 colour. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not Quite as Fine ...
... as many of the inexpensive Taschen series, in terms of the quality of the reproductions. The colors seem 'heavier' than my memories of the originals, but perhaps it's all a question of scale. Cézanne is among my long-time favorite painters, and I've spent happy hours looking at his works in museums from Paris to Berlin to Tokyo to Philadelphia. I once drove from Philly to Columbus Ohio just to see one painting by Cézanne.

But I didn't pick up this Taschen to refresh memories of Cézanne's paintings. I was interested in the text by Ulrike Becks-Malorny, specifically her discussion of the life-long friendship between the artist and the writer Emile Zola, which began when they were boys but which was dampened when Zola portrayed a 'struggling' painter in his novel "L'Oeuvre" in 1886. I've undertaken to read all twenty of Zola's 'Macquart-Rougon' novels in order, but I may need to jump ahead to "L'Oeuvre" because of my great love of Cézanne. The Taschen text is not enough.

What is it about Cézanne's painting that make it more compelling for me than that of the other Impressionists and even post-Impressionists? It's totally subjective, I suppose, but when I look long enough at a Cézanne landscape, I feel radiantly happy. I believe once again in the solidity of things and in the capacity of my senses to 'order' reality. Madame Becks-Malorny describes Cézanne's painstakingly slow method of painting in terms of asserting 'order' through balanced composition, modifying or modulating 'what he saw' until it became 'what he really saw' as a creator.

This is an inexpensive way to get a good art education.I have read some of the material, and although I don't always agree with the writer, I respect their opinion and the selections of their examples.On a broader scope, I am miffed that when I complained about receiving only a partial fulfillment of an order (Biography of R. E. Lee, FOUR VOLUMES!) you did nothing about it when I did not get the final and fourth volume.The "vendor" wrote back to me complaining of a "death" in the "family" and blaming you, Amazon, for not receiving the full order which was horse feathers.If you are not going to help me resolve these crooked dealings, why should I "help" you by writing review or discussing unfulfilled orders!?!The heck with you: I am not going to give you any feedback when it doesn't mean anything! ...

I bought all of the books in this series for our homeschool art curriculum.They are easy to read and a fun supplement that can lead to a nice trip to the Smithsonian Gallery of Art.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing books for teaching kids about art & artists in a fun way
This book - as well as every other one in the "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series -- is a fantastic purchase. It puts a creative spin on the teaching of art to children and makes the artists' stories come to life in a really "current" and cool way . . . using cartoons / graphics, great photos of masterpieces and easy-to-understand language. My son is 8 years old and loves them . . . I think these books are appropriate for a wide range of ages (from 4 / 5 up to 10 / 11, maybe even older).

Product Description
This book had its provenance in the late 1920s, when Erle Loran, then a young artist who wanted to fathom the mysteries of Cézanne's structural form, took up residence in the master's studio in Aix-en-Provence. For several years he lived there and painted, and when he came across familiar motifs in the countryside, he took snapshots of the setting. These photographs assisted Loran in his analysis of Cézanne's composition and served as the basis for this book, which analyzes over 30 of Cézanne's paintings. This new edition brings Loran's milestone study up-to-date with a new foreword by art historian Richard Shiff, who places Loran's work into today's art historical context. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting analysis
Many of Cézanne's paintings are essentially composed of flat, homogenous planes. He has no interest in textures and takes great freedom in choosing colours and distributing them patchwise. He also disregards proportions and perspective, making receding objects such as roads, mountains and hills stand up straight, so to speak, to the picture plane. Thus each plane in the painting "remains comparatively flat and parallel to the picture plane", but still the painting has a definite feeling of depth because of "the three-dimensional effect that a sequence of the same planes creates through overlapping" (plate XIII). "Cézanne's genius in organizing three-dimensional space is the basic foundation of his composition" and doing so by the plane colour patch approach agrees with the principle that a painting "must remain faithful to its own structure, to its fundamental two dimensions" (section XV). The organisation of space is achieved by the "tension" or "movement" created where planes overlap, and this is Loran's main framework for analysing Cézanne's paintings. With some imagination and many useful geometrical diagrams we can sum up the effects of the overlaps to a general movement; usually some sort of circular movement, always staying within the picture frame. Loran is very faithful to this point of view, even blaming Cézanne when it doesn't apply. In his analysis of a Sainte Victoire painting (plate X) he finds such a circular movement and concludes: "It is this circular movement that gives the painting it ultimate 'closed' effect. Actually, this canvas has many elements of open form ... personally, I find these latter elements insufficiently resolved and somewhat disturbing." Besides this analytic framework, Loran also makes more traditional analyses in terms of balance, dynamics, etc., and he also spends far too much time nagging about two pet topics: Cézanne's famous colour modulations are in fact of incidental importance and Cézanne anticipated Picasso and Braque.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Extraordinary Book!
When I first read this book, over twenty-five years ago, I thought it was the most remarkable book ever written on how an artist composes and organizes his or her creative process. Over the years, I've returned to it many times. Having recently re-read the book I find I am still thrilled by Loran's ability to illuminate the special qualities within Cézanne's canvases.As an artist and art educator, Loran was in a unique position to comprehend how this artist balanced the formal, intuitive, and experiential aspects of composition. All of this comes through admirably and clearly. Although I imagine some people might find the graphic diagrams cold and remote from the vitality of Cézanne's painting, I think a close reading of the book demonstrates that an illustrative graphic can help us reach a deeper understanding of the artist at work, in this case Cézanne. If you are a fan of Cézanne, definitely read this book! If you are interested in understanding the artistic mind, definitely read this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant explanation of space & planes.
Pages 17 to 24 are a so called "Illustrated Glossary" and are worth buying the book for. The classic rules of space and depth and planes are explained in most of their complexity. Then he discusses many many examples of Cezanne's work and how they use the principles of space, planes, and depth. A masterpiece and extensive in its scope. If you really want this type of abstract picture understanding you will not be disappointed. Very highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars great analysis of the master of masters
The book is trully great.... very well written and thoroughly analized...My only problem with it was the lack of colour plates (understanding that the study of his technique is concentrated on the orchestration of planes and volumes). I believe the study of this master requires colours... in order to fully appreciate his methods but also becuse of the pleasure of merely being a spectator and enjoying his art for what it really is...a ballet of fantasy and life!
Appart from that I do believe it is a must for any lover of art. ... Read more

Product Description
From the mid-1860s to the mid-1880s two artistic legends, Paul Cezanne and Camille Pissarro, executed numerous paintings side by side as they worked in Pontoise and Auvers. This book was published in conjunction with an exhibition of 74 paintings and 8 drawings that embody the core of the two artists' collaboration and explores their artistic relationship in detail. The artists' dynamic interaction began with their first meeting at the Academie Suisse, Paris, circa 1861, and continued through much of their careers. To examine the techniques that Cezanne and Pissarro each adopted in response to the other's work, the exhibition and book juxtapose related works by both artists, reuniting many of them for the first time since their creation. The friendship between Cezanne and Pissarro was of considerable importance within the development of early Modernism. An essay by Joachim Pissarro discusses this fascinating interchange and offers new insights into both the shared and the distinctive elements of the two artists' aesthetic sensibility. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars What an art book should be
This lavishly illustrated book sets a high standard for art books. It features large reproductions of uniformly excellent quality. Each chapter is prefaced by full page close-ups of the work of Pizarro and Cezanne so you can get a real feel for their texture and brushwork. The comparisons are often of the same motif (since Pizarro and Cezanne often painted together). The text is informative without detracting from the importance of the art.

I was never able to appreciate Cezanne until I saw his work side by side with Pizarro's. Pizarro is an honest craftsman with charming color and technique but you can clearly see that Cezanne wanted to push the boundaries of painting quite a bit more and his works are energetic, experimental explorations. I came to appreciate both artists more by reading and absorbing the visual information in this beautiful book.

If you are looking for a book with great reproductions of either Pizarro or Cezanne, get this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pizzaro & Cezanne together again!
Wow! This is a book not to be missed for those who love Impressionism and the contrast between two of the greats in a way scarecely ever shown. They were friends - mentor and student - and drew inspiration from each other over the years until the student (Cezanne) finally departed South and became his own (and more famous) man. But oh the beauty of Pizarro's work!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Fine Catalogue of an Important Exhibition: Dialogues of Cezanne and Pissarro
Though this book is a catalogue for an important exhibition traveling to the West Coast after its origin in the Museum of Modern Art in New York, it is so finely produced and contains such important information along with generous examples of the works of two significant artists that it is sure to become a major contribution to the history of art libraries around the world.It is beautiful to peruse, intelligently written and opens a window into one of the more interesting and productive friendships in art history.

Meeting in art school in the 1860's Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) and Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) continued a mutually beneficial camaraderie for twenty years, during which time they produced not only beautiful paintings but also defined an important transitional period in art. While many view Pissarro as the echt-Impressionist, andCézanne as the pioneering Post-Impressionist, essayist Joachim Pissarro's text questions the significance of these preconceivedart history monikers in codifying each artist's stance in the overall view of art history. The true significance in thedevelopment of their friendship and dialogues about art, as captured in their painting together in Pontoise and Auvers, France, lead to the development of Modernism in painting.

Wisely and elegantly designed, this book places works by each artist side by side, illuminating the interplay of the two master painters and allowing the viewer to absorb the similarities as well as thedisparities that created such a powerful dialogue and relationship and explores how each artist sought new ways to express the visualized scene before him. This is a very fine monograph, vividly encouraging all art lovers to seek attendance at the exhibition wherever possible.Grady Harp, October 05

Product Description

Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) is one of the great geniuses in the history of art, and his work has influenced a multitude of artists throughout Europe. Across the Atlantic, Cézanne’s paintings had a similarly catalytic effect on artists emerging in the United States during the early 20th century. Cézanne and American Modernism is the first book devoted specifically to his impact on American art and its eager reception there. It shows how American painters and photographers cemented Cézanne’s legacy by spreading their respect and admiration for his vision with their own art, writings, and exhibitions.


Examining Cézanne’s influence on more than a generation of American artists, this handsomely illustrated book features paintings and photography by Paul Strand, Marsden Hartley, Man Ray, Alfred Stieglitz, Charles Demuth, Arshile Gorky, Charles Sheeler, Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Maurice Prendergast, Morgan Russell, Max Weber, and many others. Cézanne’s far-reaching transformative impact on each artist’s aesthetic vision is explored, while extensive essays shed new light on a wide range of subjects from American collectors of his work and his shaping of modernism in the American West to the lasting resonance of his art on Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Resource for Understanding Cezanne's Influence on American Painters and Photographers
"Your eyes will see the King in His beauty;
They will see the land that is very far off." -- Isaiah 33:17

How does artistic influence spread? Today, an image in one location can be soon seen by billions through television, the Internet, and reproduction on paper.

A hundred years ago, a reclusive artist's work might only be seen by a few hundred people during a lifetime. Cezanne is a partial example because his work wasn't widely exhibited and collected during his lifetime. Yet if you go to any museum that presents modern art, you will see Cezanne described as a seminal influence on much of what occurred in the last century. If you are like me, you probably just assumed that Cezanne's work was always well appreciated and understood. Wrong!

Cezanne and American Modernism (the exhibition catalog for the show that is just ending at the Montclair Art Museum, moves next to The Baltimore Museum of Art, and concludes at the Phoenix Art Museum over the summer) delicately describes Cezanne's career: the visibility of his work during and after his life especially through collectors, dealers, and exhibitions; how artists and critics evaluated the work over time; and details the influence that Cezanne had on the works of over 30 prominent 20th century American artists in excellent, well-researched essays and illustrations. By coming from so many different perspectives, the essays and illustrations speak eloquently about Cezanne in a way that you've probably never thought about him. I especially enjoyed seeing Cezanne's works displayed on the same or adjoining pages as the American works that so obviously seem to be inspired from them.

Although I hadn't planned to make a special trip to see this show, now I feel that I absolutely must if I want to more deeply understand Cezanne and the many American artists whose work I so admire.

The American artists who are discussed and displayed in the volume include: Josef Bakos, Oscar Bluemner, Anne Brigman, Patrick Henry Bruce, Arthur B. Carles, Andrew Dasburg, Arthur B. Davies, Charles Demuth, Arther G. Dove, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, William H. Johnson, Leon Kroll, Stanton Macdonald-Wright, John Marin, Alfred H. Maurer, Willard Nash, B.J.O. Nordfeldt, Paul Outerbridge, Walter Pach, Maurice Prendergast, Man Ray, Anne Estelle Rice, Morgan Russell, Morton Livingston Schamberg, Charles Sheeler, Edward Steichen, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand, Abraham Walkowitz, Margaret Watkins, Max Weber, Clarence H. White, and Hale Woodruff.

If you don't know all of these artists, you'll probably find some new favorites from this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars "One day, they will have painters" (Matisse in 1933 on American art)
This is the catalogue for the current exhibition held at the Montclair Art Museum, which will later travel to Baltimore, and it focuses on a little-studied aspect of American art: the influence of Cézanne on pre-WWII American modernists (Hartley, Demuth, Man Ray, Gorky, etc). It is a wonderfully illustrated and thoroughly informative publication and, if anything, it serves as a reminder of how strong European influences were at the time and how those influences contributed to thwart the birth of a truly original American modern art (this was to happen only after WWII and the eclosion of Abstract Expressionism).

The book is full of interesting insights (such as the role of Francophile American collectors in promoting Cézanne in the US) and also of outright discoveries, such as "Cezannian" landscapes by Man Ray or Gorky which appear weak and industrious when compared to the master's works. Some three years after the Whitney exhibition focusing on the influence of Picasso on American Art, this book is an ideal complement to it and helps to understand the early developments of XXth century American painting. ...

Editorial Review

Product Description

Cézanne’s watercolors exhibit not only kaleidoscopic arrays of translucent color but also very light graphite pencil lines that contrast strikingly with the soft watery touches of color. These drawn lines have been largely overlooked in previous studies of Cézanne’s watercolors.


In this ravishing book, Matthew Simms argues that it was the dialogue between drawing and painting—the movement between the pencil and the paintbrush—that attracted Cézanne to watercolor. Watercolor allowed Cézanne to express what he termed his “sensations” in two distinct modes that become a record of his shifting and spontaneous responses to his subject. Combining close visual analysis and examination of historical context, Simms focuses on the counterpoint of drawing and color in Cézanne’s watercolors over the course of his career and as viewed in relation to his oil paintings. More than a tool for sketching or preparing for oil paintings, Simms contends, watercolor was a unique means of expression in its own right that allowed Cézanne to combine in one place the two otherwise opposed mediums of drawing and painting.

Great quality, beautiful reproductions. Great choice for any fan of cezanne or someone looking for good water color reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars More than mere studies
This book focuses on a crucial body of works by Cézanne, seldom seen and therefore seldom studied, his watercolors. Full of high-quality illustrations, it enables the reader to discover Cézanne's technique, his mastery of color and his virtuoso treatment of line, and also the relationship he draws between both. The study of this relationship between line and color is the core of the author's text, which follows a basically chronological pattern, with many anecdotes on the master's life and comments by his closest contemporaries (the writer Emile Zola, the painter Emile Bernard, etc). The last chapter, centered on Cézanne's late watercolors of bathers is particularly interesting.

Highly recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Learning to Look
As an art student Paul Cezanne became the paragon upon which I measured all other subsequent painters.The writer that taught me to see him as the North Star in that vast, swirling sky of artists was Meyer Schapiro. Having read the above book literally a dozen or more times I have foundthat it is an inexhaustible treasure.Mr. Schapiro's insights are bothscholarly and poetic.He above all seems to understand that Cezanne, whileinstrumental as a precursor to cubism, was first and foremost a greatindividual artist.Going to the Cezanne retrospective in Philadelphiaseveral years ago I remember the first thing that came to my mind was howright Mr. Schapiro had been to avoid all the fussy and downright foolishconnections that other critics are constantly making between Cezanne andmodern art.What Mr. Schapiro concentrates on rather is Cézannes paintingsand not his influence - this is most refreshing. He above all others I haveread seems to have an uncanny understanding of Cezanne as both a man and anartist.He writes that Cézanne's; "...detached contemplation of hissubjects arises from a passionate aspiring nature that seeks to master itsown impulses through an objective attitude to things."I can onlythink that this must be true of Mr. Schapiro also.Each sentence is laiddown with the care that Cezanne put into laying down each stroke of paintand as such his writing possesses a gravity that I have never found inanother critic's work with the exception of Roger Fry.The beginningof the book provides a comprehensive overview of Cézanne's work and a briefoutline of his life but the final 3/4 quarters of the book is structured asfollows: superb color reproduction on the right hand page and a fewparagraphs of commentary on the left page.These enables one to simplyopen it at any given time, find a desirable painting and read thecommentary directly next to it.Structure in this way, the book became forme a source to meditate upon the good in art when I was surrounded by theconfusion of trying to find myself among other young artists. Not being ascholar I found this book to be accessible and enriching. Mr. Schapirowrites with such sincere warmth and wisdom that when I heard of his death afew years ago I was saddened as if I had lost a friend and mentor.I hopethis wonderful book brings as much joy and inspiration to you as it has forme. ...

Reproductions here are faint, and I really did not want to see the additional work of a child. That was a surprise, but maybe I didn't read the product description fully. All these books of drawings by classical or modern masters contain pictures that have been reproduced over and over, thus, line work is weak. I wasn't looking for a sweet or cute book, but really wanted to see (clearly) drawings. Not worth buying.

This is a copy of a sketchbook of Cezanne's pencil sketches.It has a good introduction and explanation followed by a listing of the sketches and then finally all the sketches.Interesting to see if you like to draw, and especially to see if you enjoy Cezanne's paintings.

5-0 out of 5 stars A delightful sketchbook
"A Cezanne Sketchbook: Figures, Portraits, Landscapes and Still Lifes" is a reproduction of the informal drawings of the artist Paul Cezanne. These are all black-and-white sketches, accompanied by an informative introduction by Carl O. Schniewind. The sketchbook captures Cezanne's monumental human figures, haunting faces, and lyrical landscapes.

The really wonderful surprise in the sketchbook is the fact that the artist allowed his young son Paul (b. 1872) to also draw in the sketchbook. Thus we see these charming childish sketches alongside the work of a master artist. When you also consider the many portraits of little Paul by his father in this volume, the "Cezanne Sketchbook" becomes a moving testament to the love that binds a father to his son. ... Read more

Then you may enjoy this book, for me it was just -okay.Psychologically Cezanne saw the world (and his art) through very different eyes to the average human being.I wish I could also, but it takes a man with a passion solely for art with no human distractions in his life to see art as he did.I understood (to a degree) where he was coming from - but found the it too focused on art to look beyond to the psychological implications of his expression.I great gift for any artist friends!

5-0 out of 5 stars How did I miss the book?
Thank you for connecting me with the seller of this wonderful book by Jane Roberts. As an artist I am finding Cezanne's insights delightful and more than a little useful. Arrived promptly in like new condition.

5-0 out of 5 stars Whatever your beliefs.....
Whatever your beliefs, the QUALITY of the Jane Roberts /Seth material cannot be denined. imo, No one could make this stuff up...it's too good and there is too much of it.Whenever I have a phychic experience, and we all have them, I reach for a Seth book and it makes perfect sense. We do indeed create our world...update: Now that I read this book, I say it's a MUST for any painter. Wonderful insights!

5-0 out of 5 stars It's Real
I had an original copy of this book 30 years ago, when it first came out (I think it was in 1977 or 1978) - at the time, I was living in Berkley, California and read about 1/3 of the book and put it down.

I liked it then but lost interest.

However, I decided, for my own reasons, to read it again, and bought a copy less than a month ago and am almost done and I have to say that I believe this book is really a channelled view of what Paul Cezanne thought about while he painted.

I think it's fair to say that Cezanne, himself, might not have talked nearly as much about his work as what's in the book - but the book is not Cezanne talking - it's his World View of paintings - and Jane Roberts, though some curious circumstance - happened to channel that World View.

I myself, as an artist who knows a lot about Paul Cezanne - am struck by the subtle insights that could not possibly have come from Jane Roberts.

But did it come from Paul Cezanne?In a sense, Yes. We can't really evaluate a book like this in the normal way - you have to pick it up and make sense of it yourself.

I for one, do recommend this book to artists interested in what Cezanne was actually thinking while he painted.

I'll be in Aix in a couple of days and will visit Paul Cezanne's studio and hopefully, what I read in this book will complement my trip.


5-0 out of 5 stars "Rambunctious Creativity"
This remarkable little book was written in 1976, before Jane's physical challenges fully manifested. It shows a life lived to the fullest, and raises questions about what creativity is, where inspiration comes from, and what we leave behind when our "earth lives" are finished. The "Cezanne" material, "dictated" to Jane, is must reading for visual artists and for anyone interested in painting. It's especially significant as Jane had absolutely no background in art, although she was married to a painter. Where did this material come from? Did Jane make it all up? How could she? What is creativity? Is she "channeling" the "real" Cezanne? What does that mean? Really, quite an extraordinary read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Exquisite
Assembled to accompany a major retrospective of the artist's work, "Cezanne," by four art scholars and curators, includes 258 large color plates and 350 black-and-white pictures of paintings, drawings and sketches, organized by chronological period.

Each gorgeous plate is accompanied by the work's provenance and exhibitions. Accompanying text describes the painting's personal and historical context as well as critical responses at the time and through the years.

The book also includes quotes from Cezanne on art and two lengthy, thoughtful essays on "A Century of Cezanne Criticism."

A volume which will afford hours and years of pleasure to anyone interested in Cezanne's art.

5-0 out of 5 stars A book worthy of "the father of us all"
Picasso, speaking about modern art and artists, referred to Cezanne as "the father of us all." He was that rare artist whose vision -and ability to express it- was so keen and unique that it can actually impact the way we se the world around us. (How often I look into the trees and think "that looks like a Cezanne.") More than any other book of his work this volume succeeds in showing the sweep and depth of Cezanne's genius. The reproductions are superb and plentiful. The descriptive text accompanying each image, while interesting, needs to be taken with a grain of salt, as is often the case in catalogues of this nature. But the truth is I buy art books for the pictures! For text, try Rewald's book which is also excellent and contains some paintings not elsewhere printed, and deals extensively with the relationship between Cezanne and Zola. I also recommend Gotz Adriani's book on Cezanne. But if you can only have one, this is it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Cezanne is great but this book could have been better
The clumsy, poorly written text in the first few chapters is almost impossible to read.Since it's so disjointed and quotes too much from Cezanne's personal letters or from other writings, I skipped over a large portion of this.I was also surprised that the authors tried to makeCezanne into some sort of religious deity, rather than a master of his art;it could be marketing hype accompanying the show, but Cezanne's work speaksfor itself.In spite of these flaws, the painting and sketches arewonderfully reproduced, and the accompanying description is pretty good. But because the accompanying description is always laudatory and doesn'tadequately talk about his mistakes, it is sometimes difficult todistinguish between Cezanne's masterpieces and his OK work.The best partis learning what other artist, such as Monet and Matisse, owned whatCezanne painting (and then trying to speculate on why they liked a paintingso much).

5-0 out of 5 stars Cezanne
This is a must for art lovers, in general, and for 19th cent. french art lovers, specifically.Rich in colour images and a detailed editorial on each piece.Also gives the history of ownership.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty helpful background for this important artist
Context:I'm not an academic or a scholar; I'm a regular guy who likes visiting museums when I travel and I wanted to do a little researach before I left.This book worked well for my daughter and I to learn more about Cezanne - his life and his work.I'm not qualified to evaluate it from an academic perspective, but as a layman it was generally what we needed for an overview.It's easy to read and has a lot of nice illustrations.

5-0 out of 5 stars A highly recommended pick for any collection offering kids an opportunity to learn about famous painters
Paul Cezanne grew up in a rural town and received no family encourage to pursue his art, but despite this he was committed to painting and pursued his art with a steadfast vision.

Supplementing this biography are examples of his paintings from all stages of his career, with period photos and works by contemporaries offering strong contrast and background detail.

Product Description
Though they were born 62 years and hundreds of miles apart, synchronicities between Paul Cezanne and Alberto Giacometti continue to arise. Called "father of us all" by Pablo Picasso, the French Post-Impressionist Cezanne is widely regarded as the artistic bridge between Impressionism and Modernism, and he was highly influential to Giacometti, the Swiss sculptor known for his Surrealistic, elongated human forms of the 1940s, 50s and 60s. The subtitle of this volume, Paths of Doubt, refers in part to both artists' refusal of the movements by which they were embraced: in Cezanne's case, Impressionism, and in Giacometti's, Surrealism. Doubt also alludes to Cezanne's late success. His legendarily bad social skills led him from the artistic hub of 1870s Paris to the French countryside, where he lived as a recluse, only attracting attention for his work when he was in his late fifties. Giacometti, conversely, found early success with the Surrealists but broke off from them in the late 40s when he began making more realistic black figurative sculptures. His doubt surfaced in statements like these: "If I could make a sculpture or a painting (but I'm not sure I want to) in just the way I'd like to, they would have been made long since (but I am incapable of saying what I want). Oh, I see a marvelous and brilliant painting, but I didn't do it, nobody did it. I don't see my sculpture, I see blackness." This unique volume sheds light on Giacometti's stylistic allusions to Cezanne and finds surprising corollaries between the two masters' lives and work. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A beautiful book, a somewhat far-fetched demonstration but a good piece of artwriting
The catalogue for an exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, this book is a wonderful trove of beautiful reproductions of famous works by both artists. The works have been put together in order to serve the demonstration according to which there would be a mutual influence (albeit improbable since Cézanne never lived to know Giacometti)in the art of both Cézanne and Giacometti. If the latter obviously owes a debt to the master from Aix (who inspired or influenced almost every artist after him), the similarities between both artists, never studied before, also work, according to the authors, the other way around.

It takes some time and patience to understand the aim of this exhibition by reading the sometimes arduous, sometimes excitingtext of the catalogue (the part that describes Giacometti's thoughts on Cézanne is particularly interesting and is an English translation of Giacometti's interviews with Georges Charbonnier which were originally held in French). It is of course up to the reader to be convinced (I, for one, was not) but I would eventually say it is worth the reading. ... Read more

Product Description
Paul Cézanne is considered the father of modern art, but his road to artistic immortality was paved with professional obstacles and self-doubt. Born to a wealthy family, Cézanne turned his back on his father s banking business and moved to Paris to pursue a career as an artist. The rigid style of traditional painting did not interest him. He believed all the rules prevented artists from fully expressing themselves. Rather than conform, he fell in with a group of maverick artists known as the Impressionists. What set Cézanne apart was his use of color and light. He also took his canvases outside to paint in natural light. Cézanne worked in anonymity for most of his life, struggling with critical rejection, destroyed friendships, and isolation. It wasn t until after his death that he earned the recognition that had eluded him in life. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Cezanne is the father of all of us!

This heart felt statement belongs to Henri Matisse.

If a painter wishes to see the beauty that enraptures him, he counts with the power to create it. If he wishes to see the grotesque, the laughable, or the pathetic, he will be about those issues schoolmistress and master. All what it exists in the universe, in essence or in imagination, is before all matter of his mind and then of his hand.

The skillfulness of this genius was merciless. He painted as a mathematician trying to demonstrate a theorem. He created and reduced to the purest essence and very often he neglected the complexity in search of the singleness. But we know what it meant this term: the sum of the sheerness, the overlapping of colors to give the shape and rhythm of the forms.

His revolutionary conception of the picture , the space and the form, he installed the basement for the new generations of the future painters, specially for the cubists, so with all the appropriate right he can be considered as the Modernism's father. Cezanne's ideal was to express the monumental in a modern language of clear tones and vibrating.

There' s a beauty anecdote told by Tarkovsky in which Cezanne who was beloved by the great public , was however deeply worried and even sad because his neighbor didn't understand at all the meaning of his work. That detail talks by itself of the he human quality of this notable artist.

Hajo Duchting describes the different stages of Cezanne work, focused according thematic and stylistic issues. Consider this book as the most complete, ambitious and prodigal in illustrations.

Product Description
Young readers will delight in this journey through Provençe as they learn about colors, shapes, and composition from a master of modern art.

Like children everywhere, Paul Cézanne painted what was familiar to him: his family, his surroundings, and the objects in and around his home. He delighted in the most basic elements of color, size, and shape. This captivating look at the artist’s life uses Cézanne’s numerous paintings of his studio to explore his methods and technique, and his portraits of his family and friends to reveal Cézanne’s personal history. It also points out details from his greatest masterpieces, encouraging young readers to investigate for themselves just as Cézanne explored the brilliance of the French countryside—its light and hues, textures and shadows—in a way no other artist ever has. ...

Product Description
This book presents a comparative study of two pairs of collaborative artists who worked closely with one another. The first pair, Cézanne and Pissarro, contributed to the emergence of modern art. The second pair, Johns and Rauschenberg, contributed to the demise of modern art. In each case, the two artists entered into a rich and challenging artistic exchange and reaped enormous benefits from this interaction. Joachim Pissarro's comparative study suggests that these interactive dialogues were of great significance for each artist as well. ... Read more

Product Description

With essays by Roberta Bernstein, Yve-Alain Bois, Jean-François Chevrier, John Elderfield, John Golding, Christopher Green, Jennie Hirsh, Joop M. Joosten, Anabelle Kienle, Albert Kostenevich, Carolyn Lanchner, Mark D. Mitchell, Joseph J. Rishel, Katherine Sachs, Richard Shiff, Robert Storr, and Michael R. Taylor


The famous proclamation that Cézanne “is the father of us all” has been attributed to both Matisse and Picasso, and his influence has extended to a great diversity of artists thereafter. In this monumental book, a team of distinguished scholars offers the most comprehensive view to date on Cézanne’s vital role in shaping European and American art throughout the 20th century and into the 21st.


More than forty paintings and ten works on paper by Cézanne—many of his best-known and most admired—are juxtaposed throughout the catalogue with approximately 120 works by a range of modern and contemporary artists who found in Cézanne a central inspiration. They include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Fernand Léger, Brice Marden, Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, Liubov Popova, and Jeff Wall, as well as Picasso, Matisse, Johns, and Kelly. The essays offer insights into the “conversation” between Cézanne and each of these other artists, who stand on a par with his greatness. Among its many features, this book contains conceptual overviews by Richard Shiff and Robert Storr as well as an illustrated chronology.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cezanne: the father of us all.
This book profuselly illustratated, shows the heritage and presence of Cézanne in contemporary and modern art. The suprematists and russina futurism spoke of cezannism. Those essays are a demonstration, or a proof of that assertion. Alll modern avantgarde has the mark of the creative genius of Cézanne, in Europe and America. This is also true of other countries klike Brazil, notstudied here.
It is a magnificent book, with a general view of Cezanne influence and particular attention of the presence of Cezanne's touch in the works of Matisse, Picasso, Mondrian, Braque, POpova, Morandi and Giacometti, GOrski,Kelly and Jaspers John and Hrtley.

Excellent, a must read for all who want to gain insite into the development of modern art.Many excellent photos.

5-0 out of 5 stars Book As Great As the Exhibit!
The Cézanne Exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art was truly one of the best shows ever created.Rarely does one see paintings so expertly hung but so excitingly juxtaposed.The book is a jewel itself and is an extension of the excellence of the exhibit.

5-0 out of 5 stars State of the art!
This exhibition catalogue is incredible.Reproductions are first-rate.It's a big and heavy volume - all the better for us art lovers!

Essays include Cezanne's influence on such artists as Ellsworth Kelly, Brice Marden, Jasper Johns and even Jeff Wall.Highly recommended at around $40.00.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cézanne, theholy father of modern painting.
This book, the catalogue for the current show at the Philadelphia Museum of art, puts together more than 60 works by the master from Aix and 110 works by 16 "pupils" such as Marsden Hartley, Matisse, Picasso, Alberto Giacometti, Ellsworth Kelly, Jasper Johns, etc, to brilliantly show how all the art that came after Cézanne was influenced by him, including the ubiquitous and all-encompassing art of Pablo Picasso.

The illustrations are marvelous (some of rarely-seen works held in private collections), the text is enlightening, devoting one chapter to each artist, and the comparisons allow incredible discoveries (such as Ellsworth Kelly's huge swath of blue and Cézanne's sea in his Gulf of the Estaque,Picasso's 1932 Le Rêve and Cézanne's mother, Brice Marden's large intertwined abstractions and Cézanne's large bathers, and many more such affiliations).

This is really a must-have book, one of the most ground-breaking recent studies on modern art. ... Read more
