An elegant compilation of Cézanne's drawings and prints from the collection of the late Karsten Schubert

In honor of the generous bequest by the late Karsten Schubert, founder of Ridinghouse, to the Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, this luxurious book, featuring a tipped-on cover drawing, focuses exclusively on Paul Cézanne's (1839-1906) drawings and prints of diverse subjects: from portraits and bather scenes to landscapes and copies after past art. This important act of generosity means that the Whitworth now holds the best collection of Cézanne works on paper in the UK, including a version of every print produced by the artist.

With essays by renowned Impressionist scholars Richard Thomson and Christopher Lloyd and full catalog entries on all the works in the show, this volume demonstrates that the essence of Cézanne as an artist lies just as much in his lesser-known works on paper as in his paintings.
