Cézanne’s Black

Image coming soon.

John Berger shares new thoughts on Cézanne after viewing the exhibition Cézanne and Paris at the Musée du Luxembourg, Paris, on view through February 26, 2012. 

Berger writes that “after a lifetime’s companionship with him, the show was a revelation. I forgot about impressionism, cubism, 20th-century art history, modernism, postmodernism – and saw only the story of his love affair, his liaison, with the visible. And I saw it like a diagram, one of those diagrams you find in a booklet of instructions about how to use a new appliance or tool.”
