Here is the Provence that Cezanne loved, a rustic and truly authentic Provence, complete with more than traditional recipes, glorious full-color still lifes, reproductions of paintings, and vintage black-and-white photographs.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Generously illustrated and well-written book about Cezanne's life and work includes photographs of the places where he lived, roamed, and painted; objects from his still life paintings; examples of his work; and descriptions of the food he loved with authentic recipes to recreate it. The book is part of a series covering Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh, making all four of these artists and their art come alive within the context of their own time. This unique approach has inspired similar books on Matisse, Picasso and other artists.

About life, love... and tolerance of bacon?
In an essay reprinted in the October 14, 2001 SF Chronicle, famous author Salman Rushdie argued that, during the September attacks on American life, we must acknowledge that we also must defend America's "kissing in public places, bacon sandwiches..." as well as "...disagreement, cutting-edge fashion, literature,..." All of which not everyone may approve. Of course Rushdie wasn't placing bacon on a level with universal suffrage. Rushdie meant that our entire disorderly scene in America, from outrageous speech and bacon sandwiches to unfettered literature and open worship, the entire lot is the undividable and irrepressible outward manifestation of the guaranteed freedoms that define our almost unique society. Each of us may choose our way of life if it harms no one and thus each should reciprocally extend like tolerance, however reluctantly. Just coincidently then, I became enamored of a series of books about the personal lives of famous Impressionist artists. No, not detailing with whom they did or did not sleep. No, far more interesting; what, with, how and where they cooked and ate. Even how food was obtained. For example, do you know the very eccentric manner in which Toulouse-Lautrec's aristocratic father, the Count, lived his sportsman's life? In pursuit of game he traveled about 19th Century France by rail, sharing an entire train compartment only with his trained eagle in its cage on his one side (for hunting hares, etc.) and with his cormorant in another cage on his other side (brought for fishing). Just as well he wouldn't share the compartment; birds can't be housebroken.

I bought this book for my son, who is an art major and loves Cezanne. He liked it very much as it tells a lot about Cezanne's life, but be aware of the fact that it has a bunch of French recipes throughout the book. That was a big surprise to me when I looked through it before gifting. Recommend for art students.
