Paul Cezanne: the bathers

Paul Cezanne: The Bathers brings all the paintings and drawings together in this lushly illustrated volume, the first to concentrate on the bather figures which appeared in some 200 of the artist's works. Author Mary Louise Krumrine's original scholarship relates these works to literature of the period, to Cezanne's friendship with Emile Zola, to his changing relationships with women, and to the milieu of 19th-century France. The result is a revealing portrait of the artist's complex personality and a groundbreaking study of his artistic development. [Description provided by the publisher]
