A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) is best known for his landscapes, but he also painted some 160 portraits throughout his career. This major work establishes portraiture as an essential practice for Cézanne, 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 Ambroise Vollard; and concluding with a poignant series of portraits of his gardener Vallier, made shortly before Cézanne’s death. Featured essays by leading experts explore the special pictorial and thematic characteristics of Cézanne’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 Cézanne.
