Anybody who is interested in Cezanne cannot afford to miss reading this marvellous book. Deliciously sensitive and intimate it is simply the best, most definitive character portrait of this artist there is. Long awaited, these conversations are beautifully translated by Chris Pemberton, himself a not inconsiderable artist. A must for all art students and scholars.

Quick read with a lot of insight into Cezanne's extrasensory feel for color; but it's better if you have some knowledge of late 19th c artists & especially the Paris salon. Read Vreeland's Luncheon of the Boating Party first.
