On View February 26-May 31, 2009 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art


Cézanne and Beyond, a singular jewel of an exhibition, illustrates the influence that Paul Cézanne's (1839-1906) work had on a handful of his contemporaries, many artists in the next generation, and nearly every person who has taken a paintbrush to canvas after that point. Cézanne held no aspirations to become the "Father of Modern Art," but 40 oils and 20 of his watercolors and drawings, here juxtaposed amongst some 90 works by other artists, clearly demonstrate the phenomenal impact his composition and coloring had on visual art from his time until now--and, indeed, for the foreseeable future.

Cézanne and Beyond was organized by by Joseph J. Rishel, The Gisela and Dennis Alter Curator of European Painting before 1900, in collaboration with a stellar group of his Philadelphia Museum of Art colleagues. Works on display were drawn from public and private collections around the world. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is the sole venue for Cézanne and Beyond.

About the Show:

Cézanne and Beyond, a singular jewel of an exhibition, illustrates the influence that Paul Cézanne's (1839-1906) work had on a handful of his contemporaries, many artists in the next generation, and nearly every person who has taken a paintbrush to canvas after that point. Cézanne held no aspirations to become the "Father of Modern Art," but 40 oils and 20 of his watercolors and drawings, here juxtaposed amongst some 90 works by other artists, clearly demonstrate the phenomenal impact his composition and coloring had on visual art from his time until now--and, indeed, for the foreseeable future.

Cézanne and Beyond was organized by by Joseph J. Rishel, The Gisela and Dennis Alter Curator of European Painting before 1900, in collaboration with a stellar group of his Philadelphia Museum of Art colleagues. Works on display were drawn from public and private collections around the world. The Philadelphia Museum of Art is the sole venue for Cézanne and Beyond.
