Paul Cézanne has often been acclaimed as the father of modern art. This superb volume surveys the life and work of the extraordinary painter, who trod a solitary and difficult path towards his goal of an art which would combine the best of the French classical tradition of structure with the best in contemporary realism. The results are some of the most beautiful, and most popular, paintings of our time.

Among the 48 full-page color plates are examples of Cézanne's monumental landscapes, richly modeled figure groups, and marvelous still lifes, so remarkable for their geometric compositions and their stunning use of color. Each plate is accompanied by a detailed commentary on the artist's intentions and method, while the illustrated introductory essay discusses the main events and themes of Cézanne's life and work.
