Show synopsis This catalogue offers an exploration of Cezanne's work. It includes catalogue entries on nearly 230 paintings, watercolours and drawings. These works are all reproduced in colour and are accompanied by informative commentaries, further insights are provided by comparative illustrations of almost another 300 works. The book traces Cezanne's stylistic evolution from the early dark and violent canvases to the luminous works that gave different qualities to Impressionism, and finally to the late paintings that broke fresh ground. Also explored here is the artist's preoccupation with several themes and motifs - Mont Sainte-Victoire, bathers and still life. The comprehensive review of the critical response to the artist's work reveals the many interpretations of Cezanne's legacy that have been put forward. A chronology details the life and career of the artist. This is a catalogue of an exhibition at the Tate Gallery, February to April 1996, sponsored by Ernst & Young.
