This book focuses on a crucial body of works by Cézanne, seldom seen and therefore seldom studied, his watercolors. Full of high-quality illustrations, it enables the reader to discover Cézanne's technique, his mastery of color and his virtuoso treatment of line, and also the relationship he draws between both. The study of this relationship between line and color is the core of the author's text, which follows a basically chronological pattern, with many anecdotes on the master's life and comments by his closest contemporaries (the writer Emile Zola, the painter Emile Bernard, etc). The last chapter, centered on Cézanne's late watercolors of bathers is particularly interesting.

Highly recommended.

This may be what you are looking for. I personally like monographs to be just that, I found this to be more of a survey; it is filled with reproductions of other contemporary artists work. The reproductions are so-so, the color is just not there altogether. But hey - there is nothing else out there in print on this most important period... I can't comment on the text - I am a painter and buy Monographs for the reproductions only. So buy it but be forewarned about these issues and you won't be disappointed:)

It is a good book with many illustrations. For me it was not quite what I was looking for, which was more of the late
watercolors, but in general still a book I will keep and enjoy. The only disappointing thing for me was the quality of the
illustrations. Since I have been around a long time and have collected many art books I am a picky one for illustrations.
