Here is the long-awaited and much needed new translation of the correspondence of Paul Cezanne, known as the father of modern art. The existing collection in English, produced in the 1930s, is dated, inaccurate and incomplete; for this book, Alex Danchev has gone back to the original manuscript letters, clearing up decades of questionable scholarship and producing a fresh, honest and accurate translation. In his introduction Danchev paints a picture of Cezanne as a singular thinker and an uncompromising seeker after artistic truth qualities that shine through in the letters, but that many of his contemporaries failed to appreciate or comprehend. Danchev fills in the gaps here and in his many notes, revealing the mans very human hopes and fears as he strove to harness his sensations and artistic passion. The result is a collection of over 250 letters, written to family, friends, fellow artists and dealers, and encompassing major cultural figures of the late nineteenth century.

Review:

Book of the Year, Apollo Magazine, 2013

“In this definitive volume of his letters, which is beautifully illustrated and with richly informative and sensible footnotes, Cézanne himself appears in a number of different tones. He is a young penniless artist afraid of his rich father. . . . He is . . . the dreamy poet, writing to his close friend Émile Zola about his hopes as an artist. . . . He is also ambitious, measuring himself against his contemporaries.”―Irish Times

“An exemplary piece of accessible scholarship.”―Apollo

“Cézanne’s Letters elucidate his frustrations, thinking, friendships (especially with Zola), and ambitions. . . . Recommended.”―Choice

This publication is a major achievement.”—Artforum

Book Description Thames & Hudson, 2013. 1-82. Condition: New. Misunderstood by his peers but hailed by later generations as the father of modern art, Cézanne has long fascinated artists and art lovers, writers, poets and philosophers. This new annotated translation of his letters provides fresh insight into his views on art, politics, literature and friendship. Illustrated with more than 70 images, this book enriches our knowledge of the artist and the man, who emerges as wittier, wiser, more irascible, more philosophical, and above all, more fully human.
