CEZANNE: LANDSCAPE INTO ART. Revised edition. Pavel Machotka. Arbor Vitae Publishers, Revnice, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. Original edition published 1996 by Yale University Press, New Haven {Worldwide 96596}. 224 pp. with 196 ills. (160 col.). 24 x 30 cm. ISBN 9788074670497 In English.
Publisher's description: Cezanne is the supreme landscape painter of modernity, and his famous dictum that "painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one's sensations" defines the course of modern painting's extreme departure from fidelity to reality. Despite or because of this dictum, Cezanne's marvelously lucid "sensations" become all the more evident and dazzling when set against images of the locales he painted. Cezanne: Landscape into Art, which reprises and expands the classic 1996 publication by Yale University Press, does precisely this. In this highly praised study, the scholar Pavel Machotka juxtaposes photographs of the sites of Cezanne's landscape paintings--whenever possible, from the same angle and at the same time of day that the artist painted the scenes--with reproductions of the relevant paintings, offering a uniquely practical analysis of the ways in which Cezanne transformed reality into art. Since the original publication of this volume, new sites have been discovered--the result of scrutinizing collections of contemporaneous photographs and land registry records. These discoveries have added considerably to our knowledge of Cezanne's movements and have even helped to date his paintings more precisely.
