Cézanne: A Study of His Development

Excerpt

About three years ago M. Waldemar George, then editor of "l'Amour de l'Art," desiring to bring out in his journal a complete series of reproductions of the Cézannes in M. Pellerin's collection, asked me to write the accompanying text. Difficulties arose which prevented the scheme from being carried out fully and we were obliged to be content with a selection. In this reduced form my essay and such illustrations as could be procured constituted last December's number of "l'Amour de l'Art. This essay is the basis of the present work, but it has been considerably enlarged. M. Pellerin's collection is so much the most representative of all the various phases of Cézanne's art in existence, that a study of it is essential to understanding his development. It does not, therefore, interfere with the general bearing of the present essay that the majority of examples chosen are drawn thence.

My thanks are due to the Editor of "l'Amour de l'Art" for permitting the use of the blocks used in that journal, to M. Simon Lévy for valuable advice, and to Dr. Heyligers for allowing me to consult his collection of photographs of Cézanne's works.
