Cezanne and the Eternal Feminine by Wayne Andersen
Book DescriptionCezanne's painting The Eternal Feminine, painted in 1878, has been given considerable attention in the literature on this artist, though it has generally embarrassed scholars because it suggests aspects of the artist's personality that many connoisseurs in the past would rather have repressed. The painting has been known by a variety of titles and, as Wayne Andersen has discovered, has also been altered. He traced these alterations to an art dealer who made them in an effort to render the painting more marketable. This volume is the first to interrogate the original state of The Eternal Feminine and to resolve its mysterious importance to Cezanne and, more broadly, the history of art. Devoting a separate chapter to each of the titles by which the picture has been known, Andersen resolves its hidden meaning while providing a fresh look at Cezanne's artistic process.

Marcel Duchamp, Hardback (July 2010)» View all books by Wayne Andersen
Marcel Duchamp's gift to artists was similar to the Marquis de Sade's gift to sadists - relief from moral restraints, accountability, guilt, and shame. This title states that Duchamp was not the great artist that so many in the academic world believe him to be, but he was a great con artist who spread his charm and wit over the New York art scene.
