Cézanne : a biography by Paul Cézanne ( Book )
425 editions published between 1920 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 4,842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With his distinctive paintings of landscapes, figures and still lifes, Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) profoundly influenced the direction of early twentieth-century art. In this vivid account, Mary Tompkins Lewis traces Cezanne's life and work from his early years in Aix-en-Provence struggling to become a painter in the face of self-doubt and paternal opposition, through his time in Paris where he studied the Old Masters while immersing himself in Impressionism, to his later, reclusive years back in Provence, when he fused the ideals of the past and present in paintings that made him the precursor of a new art

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a new perspective on Paul Cezanne, one of the towering and most influential figures on nineteenth-century art. Pavel Machotka has photographed the sites of Cezanne's landscape painting, whenever possible, from the same spot and at the same time of day that Cezanne painted the scenes. While there are other books on Cezanne's landscapes, none is as closely informed by painterly knowledge and perception or as complete in its grasp of Cezanne's period and geography as the one

Cézanne : the self-portraits by Steven Platzman ( Book )
6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Cezanne has long been celebrated as the founding father of modern art. But astonishingly there has never been a study devoted to his self-portraits. Now, for the first time, Steven Platzman reveals the remarkable light these haunting works throw on the artist and his era." "Platzman begins with the young Cezanne struggling to make his mark in the Parisian art world of the 1860s. His earliest self-portraits express all the hostility he projected at both the official Salon and the avant-garde in these years. By the early 1870s, however, he found himself deeply isolated: military defeat and revolutionary upheaval had produced a conservative backlash throughout French political and cultural life. Cezanne responded by seeking rapproachement with the avant-garde, joining Camille Pissarro at Pontoise and temporarily adopting Impressionist technique. His self-portraits depict a more sober and accommodating figure, often sporting the rough-and-ready outdoor attire of the plein air Impressionist painter." "Like Rembrandt, Cezanne also inserted his own image into narrative paintings, in particular a series of often luridly erotic scenes from the late 1860s and 1870s. The femme fatale makes a regular appearance in these works, threatening - but always failing - to entice him from the paths of art and virtue." "By his final years Cezanne's self-portraits communicate a quieter spirit of introspection and skepticism that was very much in tune with the Symbolist mood of the times. These works are also, finally, serene and magisterial, depicting a man who, despite the doubts that never left him, had seen his aesthetic path and was sworn to pursue it till the day he died." "Cezanne: The Self-Portraits is a study of the nineteenth century's greatest painter. Accessible, authoritative, and generously illustrated, it concludes with a definitive catalog of all Cezanne's painted and drawn self-portraits."--BOOK JACKET
Cézanne and beyond by Philadelphia Museum of Art ( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The famous proclamation that Cezanne "is the father of us all" has been attributed to both Matisse and Picasso, and his influence has extended to a great diversity of artists thereafter. In this monumental book, a team of distinguished scholars offers the most comprehensive view to date on Cezanne's vital role in shaping European and American art throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. More than forty paintings and ten works on paper by Cezanne-many of his best-known and most admired-are juxtaposed throughout the catalogue with approximately 120 works by a range of modern and contemporary artists who found in Cezanne a central inspiration. They include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Fernand Leger, Brice Marden, Piet Mondrian, Giorgio Morandi, Liubov Popova, and Jeff Wall, as well as Picasso, Matisse, Johns, and Kelly. The essays offer insights into the "conversation" between Cezanne and each of these other artists, who stand on a par with his greatness. Among its many features, this book contains conceptual overviews by Richard Shiff and Robert Storr as well as an illustrated chronology." -- Publisher description

Cézanne and American modernism by Paul Cézanne ( Book )
6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) is one of the great geniuses in the history of art, and his work has influenced a multitude of artists throughout Europe. Across the Atlantic, Cezanne's paintings had a similarly catalytic effect on artists emerging in the United States during the early twentieth century. Cezanne and American Modernism is the first book devoted specifically to Cezanne's impact on American art and his works' enthusiastic reception there. It shows how American painters and photographers cemented his legacy by spreading their respect and admiration for his vision with their own art, writings, and exhibitions." "Examining Cezanne's influence on more than a generation of American artists, this illustrated book features paintings and photography by Marsden Hartley, Man Ray, Alfred Stieglitz, Charles Demuth, Arshile Gorky, Paul Strand, Charles Sheeler, Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Maurice Prendergast, Morgan Russell, Max Weber, and many others. Cezanne's transformative impact on each artist's aesthetic vision is explored, while extensive essays shed new light on a wide range of subjects, from American collectors of his work and his shaping of modernism in the American West to the lasting resonance of his art on Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s."--BOOK JACKET

Perhaps best known for his exceptional apples and pears, Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) was one of the founding fathers of modern art. Though he was underappreciated and highly criticized during his life, as time passed Cezanne work came to be considered of inestimable importance. His method of experimentation with abstraction and perspective was an important precursor to modern painting, particularly cubism
