Cézanne: The Rock and Quarry Paintings – My Visit to the Exhibition

Paul Cezanne, Rocks at Fontainebleau
Paul Cezanne, French, 1839–1906. Rocks at Fontainebleau, 1895–1900. Oil on canvas, 73.3 × 92.4 cm. The Metropolitan Museum of Art. H. O. Havemeyer Collection, Bequest of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1929.

I eagerly anticipated Cézanne: The Rock and Quarry Paintings for months after the Princeton University Art Museum announced this exhibition dedicated to Paul Cézanne‘s numerous paintings of rocky landscapes. I visited the show on opening day, March 7th, 2020, and wrote the following review for DailyArt Magazine. I was lucky to see the show when I did, because Princeton is now on hiatus due to coronavirus. I hope that the museum will be able to re-open in time for others to experience this delightful exhibition. In the meantime, you can read my review and find out why I liked it so much.
