    [Cezanne A Life] E–pub · Alex Danchev I found this book personally inspiring in it's content but did not like that the color plates are out of order and reuire one to keep flipping all around to find the work being referenced None of the photographs in the book are labeled which is frustrating for someone who wants to directly know who is being photographed Also there are many many names dropped in a manner which assumes the reader is familiar already with the subject

REVIEW ↠ Cezanne A Life Alex Danchev Ä 0 REVIEW A major biography the first comprehensive new assessment to be published in decades of the brilliant work and restless life of Paul Cezanne the most influential painter of his time and beyond whose vision revolutionized the role of the painter and changed the way artists would see and depict the world forever after Alex Danchev with brisk intellect rich documentation and eighty color illustrations tells the story. 1 Paul C zanne was the best friend of Emile Zola2 Paul C zanne ate like a viking 3 Antisemitism created a schism between the artists Degas and Renior vs C zanne and Pissarro4 Gertrude Stein hung a C zanne painting in her apartment where Picasso painted her The portrait of Stein was the beginning of Picasso s experimentations which begot Cubism Without a doubt Picasso drew from this C zanne for inspiration in abstract rendering5 Zola was embarrassed by C zanne s lack of celebrity during their adult lives He wrote a novel about a thinly veiled C zanne character which he outright called a failure It was this story that ended the lifelong friendship between Zola and C zanne6 C zanne broke down nature into its three building blocks cylinders spheres and cones7 Vincent van Gogh was an admirer of C zanne s work8 Alberto Giacometti created his standard dimensions of his human head sculptures from C zanne paintingsTruly fantastic

REVIEW ↠ Cezanne A Life Alex Danchev Ä 0 REVIEW Ef that to paint from nature is not to copy an object; it is to represent its sensations And Danchev shows us how the implications of this belief became the obsession of many other artists and writers from Matisse to Samuel Beckett The book delivers not only the fascinating life of this visionary artist and remarkable man but a complete assessment of his ongoing influence in the artistic imagination of our own tim. Very detailed history of the artist Paul Cezanne his friends paintings hardships complete sacrifice of his life painted into the canvases of nature though lost in pursuit of sur le motif for his temperament devoted all energies in his being to give the world art form never duplicated His time on earth passed into history although he lives on d outre tombe in his paintings for all to feel the strokes of genius

REVIEW ↠ Cezanne A Life Alex Danchev Ä 0 REVIEW Of an artist who during his lifetime was considered a madman a barbarian and a revolutionary Beginning with the restless teenager from Aix Danchev carries us through the trials of a painter who believed that art must be an expression of temperament but who was tormented by self doubt; whose work sold to no one outside his immediate circle until late into his thirties; who fiercely maintained the revolutionary beli. As I was wandering in my local bookshop I found myself in front of the biographies shelve next thing I saw the cover of C zanne A life and it was that very look of the master in his portrait which prompted me to buy the book It was an instinctive reaction there was something in his look that made me feel his life story was going to be worth my whileAnd what a storyDanchev s effort is outstanding from any perspective He presents C zanne s biography through the prism of many relevant people along the painter s life In an exercise of supreme scholarship Danchev manages to put together an amalgam of accounts chiefly from C zanne acuaintances under a very well defined storyline To achieve this there s a well accomplished use of the English and French languages there are plenty of French uotations And all of that without being pompous With a surgeon like accuracy Danchev exuisite and clever use of both languages greatly helps to enhance the reading experience And when it comes to analysing C zanne s works or even to go a little bit further on the last chapter and psychoanalyse the man himself it s this very mastery that leaves no room for ambiguity Maybe this heavy prose style makes the book slow to read at times but the pleasure of digging into well thought out analysis outweighs any slownessIt s also the way the book is structured that makes it all the engaging It follows a linear storyline as nearly every biography out there but it s unusual introduction sets the standard for the rest of the book We are introduced to C zanne through his long time friendship with mile Zola Zola wrote a novel entitled L uvre which apparently borrowed a lot on C zanne Danchev analyses L uvre to outline what person C zanne really was So this will be C zanne looked under Zola s prism as I mentioned earlier It s this literary approach rather than a conventional one that sets this book apart from any other biography I ve read beforeThere are prisms in the book so when you re finished with it you will have a clear picture of who C zanne was what he did and why he is a pivotal part of modern art In my opinion that was the great achievement of Danchev with this work being able to tell a biography putting many pieces together yet having is very solid and consistent workThis book should be read as a C zanne s work should be watched or any artist work for the matter That is slowly delighting in every paragraph and coming back to it if you need to That s how you will make the most of this fascinating biographyIf I had to mention any shortcomings that would be the total absence of footnotes they would have come in handy for the French uotations and also on the pictures used I still give it a 5 out of 5 because the reading experience was uniue superb compelling long etc PS I have no interest in art whatsoever I don t speak French and English is not my mother tongue All the same I think this book is amazing Never mind other reviews where it is said this is a heavy and slow read I admit it s not 100% fluid but still highly readable
