Published on the centenary of the artist's first one-man exhibition mounted in Paris, this catalogue contains more than 240 colorplates of works by Paul Cézanne (1839–1906), illuminated by thoughtful commentaries by an array of international scholars. Numerous black-and-white illustrations of paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sketchbook pages represent all aspects of his oeuvre. This volume's comprehensive review of the critical response evoked by Cézanne's work, both during his lifetime and afterward, is unprecedented in the literature on the artist. Also included are a fully documented, illustrated chronology and an annotated glossary of the collectors who acquired the work of the nineteenth-century master.
Published to accompany the 1996 Cézanne retrospective organized by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux/Musée d'Orsay, Paris; the Tate Gallery, London; and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Awarded the prize for Best Museum Catalogue published in 1995–96 by the International Association of Art Critics.
