C?zanne/Cezanne: A Study of His Development
Czanne/Cezanne A Study of His Development Author:Roger Fry C?zanne/Cezanne: A Study of His Development — Roger Fry — Introduction by Alfred Werner — The late Roger Fry was an art critic of unequalled perception and influence. One of his missions was to work for a better understanding of the Impressionist school and, above all, to claim for C?zanne (1838-1906) the great place that was rightfully his. In ... more »C?ZANNE Fry wrote a critical analysis which in many aspects has never been surpassed. He achieved with conspicuous success a two-fold aim: to show the essential development of the painter?s genius and to approach his work as it really is; as Fry himself words it, to detect ?the profound difference between C?zanne?s message and what we have made of it.?
The result is a book, couched in Fry?s most lucid, penetrating manner, which is of great technical value to the painter and student, and which offers to the layman an illuminating demonstration of the essential nature of C?zanne?s art.
