Published in a limited edition of 25 copies, this elegant boxed volume presents Joel Meyerowitz' masterful color photographs of Cézanne's Atelier and the objects, and includes a photograph signed and numbered by the artist. Some years ago, Meyerowitz visited Cézanne's studio in Provence, and experienced a flash of understanding about his art. Cézanne had painted the walls a dark gray, mixing the color himself. Consequently, every object in the studio seemed to be absorbed into the gray of the background. Meyerowitz saw how Cézanne thus flattened perspective. He decided to take each of the objects in the studio and view them against the gray wall. He then arranged them in rows, and made a photographic grid of five rows with five objects on each row. These photographs are at once marvelous photographic still lifes and an incredible revelation of Cézanne's methods.
