Paul Cezanne.

PAUL CEZANNE, Gerstel Mack. New York: Paragon House, 1989. Illustrated, 488 pp., softbound, $14.95.

Originally published over 50 years ago by Knopf, these two books were the first complete biographies, published in English, about these two icons of modern art. In addition, each of these reissues are in-depth and definitive in their account of the lives of both Cezanne and Lautrec.

Correspondence, vintage photographs and compelling descriptions of the social and historic context provide authoritative documentation concerning the lives and art production of both artists. The writing style in each of these lengthy biographies, through anecdote and reported conversations, provide reading that is entertaining as well as informative. High school, university and personal libraries will be enriched by the inclusion of these engrossing interpretations of two modern masters.
