A remarkable biography of the cultural icon, Paul Cézanne
Danchev's Cézanne has... virtues of imaginative sympathy, independence of mind, and wide scholarship. He writes as if Cézanne's life and character are as immediately present before him as is the art
A brave new life of Cézanne ... much of this new material successfully illuminates Cézanne's inner life. An important book
Enlightening . . . Accomplished and subtle
This is a great book - possibly the best - on one of the most respected impressionists
The most engrossing biography of an artist that I have read for years. With lightness of touch, depth of thought, a vast cultural hinterland and an assured understanding of painting, Danchev marvellously brings to life Cézanne the man, as well as the pioneering artist called "the father of us all" by Picasso.
