Very interesting book for anyone interested in art and in the work of Paul Cezanne. Alot of interesting details on his life and relationships with family members. Beautiful drawings and colourful watercolours of Paul Czanne. The letters are copies of letters he penned himself. Haven't finished the book yet but I am really enjoying it.

Excellently produced and illustrated; the translation sensibly follows the overall meaning of the French, rather than a verbatim word or phrase; both illustrations and notes are placed concurrent with the letters of that time which saves turning to the end of the book. t

I bought this for my husband because he is interested in Cezanne's work. However he found many of the letters to be rather underwhelming. However the letters he wrote towards the end of his life where he opens up about his art, are very interesting.

the obsessed painter who changed the course of art, seen here through his letters which offer not only great insight, but a real glimpse into the real person through a kaleidoscope of friends.

Cezanne's rapports 20 Nov 2013
By Son of May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Gabriel Josipovici compares the letters of Paul Cezanne to the letters of Vincent van Gogh. Allowing that Cezanne’s letters, paintings, and values are to him as van Gogh’s works are to him, a comparison doesn’t illuminate the letters or the art of either. Cezanne had worked and lived on behalf of his own values, expressed in his art and in his own words. He wrote in a letter to his son Paul this sentence as translated by John Rewald: “I started a water-colour in the style of those I did at Fontainbleau, it seems more harmonious to me, it is all a question of getting as much affinity as possible.” Rewald later retranslated, “it is all a question of putting in as much inter-relation as possible.” Liliane Brion-Guerry published, in the translation of her catalogue, “the main thing is to put in as much rapport as possible.” Cezanne had written: “le tout est de mettre le plus de rapport possible” (14 August, 1906). Matisse, en rapport, had written of a painting by Cezanne: “la sobrieté exceptionelle de ses rapports.” Now Alex Danchev has translated: “the thing is to convey as much rapport as possible.” He has not reduced rapport, but he has italicized French "rapport" within an English sentence, so that the word
continues the story of Cezanne’s life -- even his rapport with trees. This tact with one governing axiomatic concept -- one word with italics doubling the word -- promises a translation en rapport with Cezanne --
