Cézanne: Landscape into Art

"Cézanne is the supreme landscape painter of modernity, and his famous dictum that 'painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one’s sensations' defines the course of modern painting’s extreme departure from fidelity to reality. Despite or because of this dictum, Cézanne’s marvelously lucid 'sensations' become all the more evident and dazzling when set against images of the locales he painted. Cézanne: Landscape into Art, which reprises and expands the classic 1996 publication by Yale University Press, does precisely this."
