A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Cézanne Drawing

Museum of Modern Art / New York / Art

“Drawing is merely the configuration of what you see,” wrote Paul Cézanne. The French master drew daily, his subjects including everything from the landscapes of Provence to domestic scenes in his home. He drew the knives and forks on his kitchen table, the lamps in his living room, his wife and son, and the lulling hills of nearby Mont Sainte-Victoire. The sketches let us in on Cézanne’s creative process. Some pages are filled with intertwining lines in pencil, while others are layered with thin washes of watercolor. In this exhibition, 250 rarely seen drawings are on view. —E.C.
