Cézanne: Site/Non-Site

Edited with text by Guillermo Solana. Text by Paula Luengo.

In 1969, the artist Robert Smithson proposed a new interpretation of the work of Paul Cézanne (1839-1906). In Smithson's view, Cézanne's painting had been distorted by the Cubists, reduced to an almost abstract play of forms. In contrast to this formalist simplification, Smithson underlined the need to recover the physical reference in Cézanne's work, his strong link to certain places in Provence. Published on the occasion of a major exhibition on Cézanne, Site/Non-Site celebrates the work of a foundational figure in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century painting who is widely regarded as the father of modern art. The term "site/non-site" evokes a pair of concepts that were coined by Smithson in connection with his own oeuvre and explores the dialectic between outdoor and studio practice, which Cézanne cultivated throughout his career. Landscape is the dominant genre in Cézanne's work, identified with the practice of plein-air painting. But unlike his Impressionist contemporaries, he also attaches decisive importance to a genre characteristic of the studio: still life. This publication includes a chronology of Cézanne's life as well as a text from Guillermo Solana in which he traces the development of Cézanne's style and motifs throughout the artist's career.

Cézanne: Site/Non-Site

Cézanne: Site/Non-Site

Paul Cézanne's 1900-06 painting "The Bend in the Road" is reproduced from Cézanne: Site/Non-Site, an early release from our Fall 2014 catalogue. Author Guillermo Solana writes, "Rather than a proprietor, Cézanne was a rambler. His experience of the territory of Provence did not spur him to fence in and parcel off the landscape but, on the contrary, to seek the freedom of the roads, to explore its intimate corners and its open vistas. But before becoming a painting, this perspective experienced by the picturesque traveler, this walkscape, needed to be processed by the artist's studio. To order his impressions of the outdoors, the painter subjects them to the cubic structure of the indoors with its vertical and horizontal coordinates, which symbolize the subject's rational control over nature. The memory of the constructed and closed environment of the atelierdetermines Cézanne's landscape from one end to another. Behind each bend in the road, in each background sky, we find the studio wall." continue to blog
