Paul Cézanne The Village of Gardanne (detail), c. 1886. 92.1 x 73.2 cm The Brooklyn Museum, Ella C. Woodward Memorial Fund y Alfred T. White Memorial Fund
In conjunction with the exhibition Cézanne site/non-site the Museum has organised a monographic course on the artist, a key figure in painting in the second half of the 19th and the early 20th centuries. Entitled Reencounter with Cézanne and directed by Guillermo Solana, curator of the exhibition and Artistic Director of the Museum, the course will consist of lectures given by members of the Museum’s Department of Modern Painting and Restoration Department. The lectures will focus on different aspects of Cézanne’s work, including his preference for still lifes and landscapes, his relationship to other Impressionist painters and his status as a forerunner of Cubism.
The course takes place over six weeks, on Wednesday afternoons, in the Museum’s Auditorium. Preferential booking for students and Friends of the Museum opens on 19 February. Booking for the general public opens on 26 February.
