Item description for Right Under The Sun: Landscape In Provence by Paul Cezanne, Andre Derain, Emile Loubon, Joseph Vernet, Richard Thompson, Marie-Paule Vial, Paul Cezanne & Andre Derain...
From the Pax Romana to Peter Mayle, Provence's lovely climate and lively landscape have proven irresistible to visitors, and especially artists. The fabled landscape cheered up even Van Gogh, whose short but productive time there resulted in paintings in blazing golds and uncharacteristically bright letters to his brother. This exhibition catalogue collects some 180 works from a fertile century and a half of painting, encompassing Classicism, Romanticism, Naturalism, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, and Cubism. The tour of Provence starts with Vernet's high views of the port of Marseilles (a favorite subject of others as well), continues through late-18th-century celebrations of natural phenomena such as the gorges of Ollioules, and comprehensively covers the explosion of masterworks of the 1880s leading into the 1920s, including those by Monet, Renoir, Gauguin, Czanne, Derain, Dufy, and Braque. By primarily focusing on landscape, Right Under the Sun allows us to see these master artists anew, and offers insight into the development of Provenal painting, examining the effect of the harsh light and the rise of the panoramic compositional format. Essays by Nicholas Cendo, Denis Coutagne, Benot Countancier, Fred Leeman, Vincent Pomerde, Richard Thompson and Marie-Paule Vial. Hardcover, 9.5 x 11 in./288 pgs / 230 color.

More About Paul Cezanne, Andre Derain, Emile Loubon, Joseph Vernet, Richard Thompson, Marie-Paule Vial, Paul Cezanne & Andre Derain
Paul Cezanne was born in 1839 in Aix-en-Provence, France. After studying law for several years, he left Aix in 1861, along with his friend Emile Zola, in order to pursue life as an artist in Paris. Cezanne's paintings were first shown in the innaugural exhibition of the Salon des Refuses in 1863, which displayed works not accepted by the jury of the official Paris Salon. The Salon subsequently rejected Cezanne's submissions every year from 1864 to 1869. Although many early twentieth-century Modernists considered him the founder of Modern painting--Picasso famously called him "the father of us all"--Cezanne exhibited little in his lifetime, and returned to Provence, where he worked in increasing artistic isolation until his death in 1906.
