Summary
A major new study of the portraiture of one of the most important artists of the nineteenth century. Paul Cezanne (1839-1906) may be best known for his landscapes, but he also painted some 160 portraits throughout his exceptional career. This major work establishes portraiture as an essential practice for Cezanne, from his earliest self-portraits in the 1860s; to his famous depictions of figures including his wife Hortense Fiquet, the writer Emile Zola, and the art dealer Ambrose Vollard; and concluding with a poignant series of portraits of his gardener Vallier, made shortly before Cezanne's death. Featured essays by leading experts explore the special pictorial and thematic characteristics of Cezanne's portraits. The authors address the artist's creation of complementary pairs and multiple versions of the same subject, as well as the role of self-portraiture for Cezanne. They investigate the chronological evolution of his portrait work, with an examination of the changes that occurred within his artistic style and method, and in his understanding of resemblance and identity. They also consider the extent to which particular sitters influenced the characteristics and development of Cezanne's practice
