A study of Paul Cezanne. Mocked by critics, he withdrew to Provence where he laboured quietly until hailed as the father of a new art. His work is shown in this book in full colour, his story is recounted by friends, critics and himself.
Paul Cezanne - a solitary genius who overcame opposition from his family, friends and the official Salon - made painting the sole preoccupation of his life. He worked unceasingly to realize his vision of a 'harmony parallel to nature', investigating the logic of colours and re-creating space.
Mocked by Parisian critics, he withdrew to Provence where he laboured quietly until a later generation hailed him as the father of a new art.
Here is his story, told in his own words, in those of his friends, and in the accolades of great artists, philosophers and critics.
