Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Doran has gathered texts by contemporaries of Paul Cand#233;zanne (1839-1906)and#151;including artists, critics, and writersand#151;that illuminate the influential painter's philosophy of art especially in his late years. The book includes historically important essays by a dozen different authors, including Emile Bernard, Joaquim Gasquet, Maurice Denis, and Ambroise Vollard, along with selections from Cand#233;zanne's own letters.

In addition to the material included in the original French edition of the book, which has also been published in German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese, this edition contains an introduction written especially for it by noted Cand#233;zanne scholar Richard Shiff. The book closes with Lawrence Gowing's magisterial essay, "The Logic of Organized Sensations," first published in 1977 and long out of print.

Cand#233;zanne's work, and the thinking that lay behind it, have been of inestimable importance to the artists who followed him. This gathering of writings will be of enormous interest to artists, writers, art historiansand#151;indeed to all students of modern art.

Synopsis:

"This is an extraordinary book. It not only contains all the accounts written by those who met Cand#233;zanne and spoke with him (including several 'interviews' with the painter), but it also puts these accounts in perspective."and#151;Yves-Alain Bois, Harvard University

"Doran's collection of diverse primary sources recording Cand#233;zanne's theories and the early critical reception of his art is an essential monument in the painter's bibliography, previously not accessible. And Gowing's thoughtful essay serves as a superb model for how such primary material should be consulted."and#151;Mary Tompkins Lewis, author of Cand#233;zanne

Synopsis:

This book gathers the commentary of people who knew the painter Paul Cezanne, especially in his later years. Now seen as one of the most influential of modern painters, in his 40s he returned to his village of Aix-en-Provence where, he worked in near obscurity and with great dedication until his death in 1906.
