In the catalog to the Cezanne exhibition showing in Paris, London, and Philadelphia, Director of the Musees de France Cachin, Philadelphia Museum of Art curator Joseph J. Rishel, and staff at the Musee d'Orsay have taken great care in presenting the multifaceted and enigmatic genius. The bulk of the book is taken up by over 175 color and many black-and-white reproductions of every piece in the show, segmented by decade and accompanied by informative essays authored by organizing committee members. The authors also provide a glimpse of the artist through his own words as well as many anecdotal commentaries and work by historical figures who knew him. The development of Cezanne criticism is briefly traced from its early days to its present-day esteem for the artist. The chronology is detailed, illustrated, and authoritative. The book is a prelude to John Rewald's forthcoming and much-awaited The Paintings of Paul Cezanne: A Catalogue Raisonee (Abrams, 1996). As such, and as a record of the long overdue, large-scale retrospective, it is a worthwhile addition to all modern art and comprehensive collections.?Ellen Bates, New York Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
