Paul Cezanne : Drawings and Watercolours, Hardback Book

Paul Cezanne : Drawings and Watercolours Hardback

Description

Drawing was central to Cezanne's indefatigable search for solutions to the problems posed by the depiction of reality.

Many of his watercolours are equal to his paintings, and he himself made no real distinction between painting and drawing.

This book's six chapters are arranged thematically covering the whole range of Cezanne's uvre: works after the Old Masters such as Michelangelo and Rubens; his period as one of the Impressionists; his exploration of both portraiture and the human figure, including the magnificent bathers; his interaction with landscape, particularly in his native Provence and the dominating form of Mont Sainte-Victoire; and finally the magisterial still lifes.

In the Introduction, as well as throughout the book, Lloyd sets the drawings and watercolours in the context of Cezanne's life and overall artistic development.

The result is a greater understanding of the process that led to some of the most absorbing art ever produced.
