At this special evening edition of Roundtable, join the team behind Cézanne Drawing—curators Jodi Hauptman and Samantha Friedman and conservator Laura Neufeld—for a discussion of several key writings that illuminate the artist’s practice on paper.
A selection of Paul Cézanne’s letters to fellow artists, family, and art suppliers are available to download; read them and come to engage in a lively conversation about how they help us understand his complex, multifaceted, modern vision. To guide your reading, consider these questions: What did Cezanne mean by his “sensations”? How did his language differ when writing to a fellow artist, to his family, or to his suppliers?
