Photographer Joel Meyerowitz's flash of understanding about Cézanne’s art

Joel Meyerowitz: Cézanne's Objects

Text by Joel Meyerowitz, Maggie Barrett.

Featured images are reproduced from 'Joel Meyerowitz: Cézanne's Objects.'

Meyerowitz brilliantly demonstrates how Cézanne’s studio and its contents enhanced the flatness of his paintings

Some years ago, while working on a book commission about Provence, Joel Meyerowitz visited Cézanne’s studio in Aix-en-Provence. While there, he experienced a flash of understanding about Cézanne’s art. Cézanne had painted the studio walls a dark gray, mixing the color himself. Consequently, every object in the studio seemed to be absorbed into the gray of the background. There were no telltale reflections around the edges of the objects, so there was nothing that could separate them from the background itself. Meyerowitz suddenly saw how Cézanne, making his small, patch-like brush marks, moved from the object to the background, and back again to the objects, without the illusion of perspective. After all, Cézanne was the original voice of “flatness.”

Meyerowitz decided to take each of the objects in Cézanne’s studio and view them against the gray wall (managing to obtain permission from the Director of the Atelier—no-one had touched these objects in ages). His impulse was to place each one in the exact same spot on his marble-topped table and just make a “dumb” record of it. He then decided to arrange them in rows, almost as if they were back on his shelf above the table, and made a grid of five rows with five objects on each row, with Cézanne’s hat as the centerpiece.

This beautifully designed volume presents these photographs, which are at once marvelous photographic still lifes and an incredible revelation of Cézanne’s methods.

A photographer's revelation in "Joel Meyerowitz: Cézanne's Objects"

A photographer's revelation in "Joel Meyerowitz: Cézanne's Objects"

Look familiar? Featured images are reproduced from Cézanne's Objects, color master Joel Meyerowitz’s new collection of photographs of the objects that Cézanne left behind in his studio when he died of pneumonia in 1906. “A few years ago during a visit to Cézanne's studio in Aix-en-Provence,” Meyerowitz writes, “I experienced a flash of insight about the artist that I saw as intrinsic to his becoming the father of modern painting. Once having seen it, it inspired me to move in a new direction in my own work. Cézanne painted his studio walls a dark grey with a hint of green. Every object in the studio, illuminated by a vast north window, seemed to be absorbed into the grey of this background. There were no telltale reflections around the edges of the objects to separate them from the background itself, as there would have been had the wall been painted white. Therefore, I could see how Cézanne, making his small, patch-like brush marks, might have moved his gaze from the object to background, and back again to the objects, without the familiar intervention of the illusion of space.” continue to blog
