Description - Cezanne: His Life and Works in 500 Images by Susie Hodge
This is an illustrated exploration of the artist, his life and context, with a gallery of 300 of his finest paintings. It offers a perceptive and detailed account of the artist, Paul Cezanne, who uniquely bridged the gap between the Impressionist and the Cubist movements. This fascinating biography portrays his life in the context of society at the time, and provides an insight into his friendships and family. It features a handsome gallery of 300 of Cezanne's most iconic works, accompanied by expert analysis of his style and technique. It explains the artist's mastery of colour, design, composition, and observation. This beautiful book is an exploration of a fascinating artist who changed the world of art in the 20th century and inspired future painters such as Picasso and Matisse, who said of Cezanne that he was 'the father of us all'. The first part of the book traces the progress and development of Cezanne's artistic talents and his childhood in Aix-en-Provence, where he was brought up by an intelligent, warm-hearted mother and a strict, authoritarian father. His friendship with Emile Zola, forged at college and based on shared interests, had a huge influence on Cezanne's chosen career, and their association lasted for 40 years. The second part of the book features a gallery of 300 of Cezanne's works. The paintings represent the different stages and milestones of his career, as he concentrated on themes such as still lifes, landscapes, and portraits, working his way from Impressionism to his distinct Cubist style.
