A groundbreaking approach to the study of CÃ©zanne's works on paper
This book brings to light new research into the work of Paul CÃ©zanne (1839-1906), based on close examination of the DNA makeup that constitutes the papers he used for his watercolors and drawings. The book features in-depth analyses of the works in the show by Fabienne Ruppen, as well as extensive commentary on CÃ©zanne scholarship by Walter Feilchenfeldt, co-author of the artist's new catalogue raisonnÃ©.At the heart of the book are two watercolors that CÃ©zanne produced from a large sheet of paper, which he divided in two sections for the purpose of capturing different landscapes, La Montagne Sainte-Victoire, from 1885-87, and a Paysage ProvenÃ§al. Reunited for the first time, these two parts of the same sheet exemplify Ruppen's research methods and the way these enable us to reconsider the dating of CÃ©zanne's work based on forensic evidence.
