Paul Cézanne once said, “I want to make of Impressionism something solid and lasting like the art in museums.” Cézanne was a highly influential figure in 20th century art, a pioneer in the Post-Impressionist movement and inspiration for the Cubist movement; his legacy in the art world remains firmly in place to this day.

MONTCLAIR, NEW JERSEY — The Montclair Art Museum (MAM) presents Cézanne and American Modernism, the first exhibition to examine fully the influence of Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) upon modern American artists from 1907 to 1930. The exhibition will explore the critical function American artists and others played in establishing the reputation of Cézanne, who has been universally acclaimed as the definitive bridge between late 19th-century Impressionism and the modern art movements of the 20th century.

As the largest, most ambitious exhibition in the 95-year history of the Museum, Cézanne and American Modernism comprises 131 works, including 18 works by Cézanne and paintings, works on paper, photographs, and archival documents representing 34 American artists, as well as critics.

Cézanne and American Modernism is currently on view through January 3, 2010.
