Cezanne and Pissarro met each other in 1861, and developed a personal and professional relationship that lasted almost a quarter of a century. Their artistic interchange is the focus of this book, newly available in paperback, which is the first to bring together the work of these two major artists and to examine their output at a crucial moment in their careers. The books narrative, which includes quotes from letters to each other and to their family and friends, brings to vivid life the remarkable give-and-take between these two pioneers. An essay by Joachim Pissarro discusses this fascinating relationship and offers new insights into both the shared and the distinctive elements of the two artists' aesthetic sensibility.
