‘Introduces areas of debate, and novel approaches, into ‘Cézanne studies’, which are also of relevance to the wider discipline of art history‘.
Paul Smith, University of Warwick

‘A fine and stimulating collection of essays….Cézanne has always particularly attracted interpretation and analysis, in as much as his work holds seeming incongruities and presents the viewer with paradoxes. Its celebrated instability will never be brought to rest, and this collection reopens enquiry yet again, with reference to a particularly intriguing set of works…it makes a significant contribution to Cézanne scholarship’.
Brendan Prendeville, Goldsmiths
