"Paul Cézanne was a French artist who painted landscapes, bowls of fruit, and stoves."
Paul Cézanne was a French artist who painted landscapes, bowls of fruit, and stoves, and whose work laid the foundations for painting in particular and visual arts in general in the 20th century. Cézanne bridged Impressionism with Cubism and other styles that sought to manifest the subjective quality of perception and time embodied in objective experiences of seeing reality as such. Wht was Cézanne? uses the spirit of Cézanne as a departure point to express, through layered texts and images, what concrete experiences of seeing reality today look and feel like. There is not a single image of Cézanne's work, nor images of Cézanne himself in this book, as Cézanne would have preferred.
