Cezanne by Himself: Drawings, Paintings, Writings

BookBucks Review and collect 20 points.
This volume on the life and work of Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) brings together for the first time a diverse and revealing selection of material, drawn from 800 paintings and 2,000 drawings and watercolors, and also from his correspondence and the memoirs of his friends. Despite being one of the most influential nineteenth-century artists, Cézanne was far from being a conventional hero, and was ill at ease in the cafes and salons of the Paris art world. His work shows a classical concern with form and structure which sets it apart from the Impressionist mainstream, and led a subsequent generation of art historians to dub him the first "Post-Impressionist". This book provides fascinating evidence of the artist's friendships and family life and through his own writings and the reminiscences of his contemporaries shows the paradoxes and contradictions of his personality.
