So deep was the link between painter Paul Cezanne and Provence, National Gallery of Art curator Conisbee surmises, that the red pigment in Cezanne's paints came directly from the marne rouge, the region's red soil. In this volume, which accompanies an exhibition of the same name, Conisbee, Musee de Granet director Coutagne and others explore the painter's relationship with the region in exhaustive detail, offering insight into his methods and motivations. Cezanne eschewed scenes of the region's modernization for scenes of classical evocation and timelessness, and his choice to paint en pleine air was inspired not just by his mentor, the Impressionist Camille Pisarro, but also by an intense desire for isolation. "Isolation, that's what I deserve." he wrote. "At least that way, no one can get their hooks into me." His sojourns in the fishing village L'Estaque marked a turning point-as did his father's death, which freed the artist from the burdens of paternal disapproval. The plates and illustrations offer a remarkable overview of the various Provencal locales Cezanne repeatedly painted: Mount Saint-Victoire, L'Estaque, his father's home (the Jas de Bouffan) and additional sites in the region, allowing the reader to chart Cezanne's development of a technique that "makes it seem as though the paint itself is radiating light." A stellar record of the painter's life and work, this book is a must-have for art enthusiasts. 170 pages of color plates, 145 color and 30 black and white photographs.
