Across the Atlantic, Cezanne's paintings had a similarly catalytic effect on artists emerging in the United States during the early twentieth century. Cezanne and American Modernism is the first book devoted specifically to Cezanne's impact on American art and his works' enthusiastic reception there. It shows how American painters and photographers cemented his legacy by spreading their respect and admiration for his vision with their own art, writings, and exhibitions." "Examining Cezanne's influence on more than a generation of American artists, this illustrated book features paintings and photography by Marsden Hartley, Man Ray, Alfred Stieglitz, Charles Demuth, Arshile Gorky, Paul Strand, Charles Sheeler, Stanton Macdonald-Wright, Maurice Prendergast, Morgan Russell, Max Weber, and many others. Cezanne's transformative impact on each artist's aesthetic vision is explored, while extensive essays shed new light on a wide range of subjects, from American collectors of his work and his shaping of modernism in the American West to the lasting resonance of his art on Abstract Expressionism in the 1950s."--Jacket.
