Dr. Machotka has provided us with one of the most important recent studies of Cezanne of our time. He comes well prepared for this task having produced several other acclaimed books on Cezanne. Machotka lived in Aix in Provence and photographed all of the known landscape locations that were dear to Cezanne and then compared and contrasted these with and against the paintings of the Master of Aix himself (Cezanne). Bringing this site specific knowledge to a vast survey of Cezanne's paintings and weaving this intimate knowledge of the art and mind of the artist into a dense and insightful text-- " The Eye and the Mind" reveals Machotka's background as a Dr. of Psychology and his rich education in the arts. He has left the reader with a valuable entrance into the mind of a genius. . . the Master of Aix, the acknowledged "father of modern art". William J. Havlicek PhD.
