The famous proclamation that CÃ©zanne Â“is the father of us allâ€ 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 CÃ©zanneâ€™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 CÃ©zanneÂ—many of his best-known and most admiredÂ—are juxtaposed throughout the catalogue with approximately 120 works by a range of modern and contemporary artists who found in CÃ©zanne a central inspiration. They include Max Beckmann, Georges Braque, Charles Demuth, Alberto Giacometti, Arshile Gorky, Marsden Hartley, Fernand LÃ©ger, 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 Â“conversationâ€ between CÃ©zanne 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.
