Paul Cézanne was always a painter whose works were greatly admired by his artistic contemporaries. This book shows how his work made him one of the pioneers of modernism.

Cézanne and the Dawn of Modern Art presents selected paintings by Paul Cézanne alongside works by younger artists that reveal the powerful influence of the founder of modern painting. The driving forces in the reception of Cézanne's art were not art critics, art historians, or even Cézanne himself, but rather other artists: primarily the Fauves - led by Matisse, de Vlaminck, and Derain - and the Cubists - including Picasso, Braque, and Léger - all of whom absorbed and elaborated on Cézanne's revolutionary ideas about color and composition. Against this background of Cézannisme, the book presents key works by Cézanne and younger artists in revealing juxtapositions. Readers will discover analogies and variations between the works of the "father of modern art" and those of his successors in series of related motifs - portraits, still lifes, and landscapes - a compact history of the icons of modern art.
