From Library Journal:
One master offers a beautifully written and illustrated volume on another. Rewald uses the documentary approach taken in his History of Impressionism (1961) to describe the life and work of Cezanne. The artist's character is revealed in his own words and in those of his friends, especially the novelist Emile Zola, making Cezanne accessible in a way simple narrative cannot. Adding greatly to our understanding of Cezanne's development as a painter are the 270 illustrations, many of unfamiliar works here published in color for the first time. The fact that the work was originally published 50 years ago as Rewald's doctoral thesis does not diminish its value, as the author has revised and expanded it and updated the bibliography. An essential purchase for most libraries. Patricia R. Hausman, Williamsburg Regional Lib., Va.
