Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) has been acclaimed by the twentieth century as the father of modern art. This superb volume surveys the life and work of an extraordinary painter, who trod a solitary and difficult path towards his goal of an art which would combine the best of the French classical tradition of structure with the best in contemporary realism. The results are some of the most beautiful, and most popular, paintings of our time. Among the 48 full-page colour plates are examples of Cezanne's monumental landscapes, richly modelled figure groups, and marvellous still lifes, so remarkable for their geometric compositions and their stunning use of colour. Each plate is accompanied by a detailed commentary on the artist's intentions and method, and the illustrated introductory essay discusses the main events and themes of Cezanne's life and work.
