CÉZANNE AND THE MODERN FRENCH PRINT

Centring on an exciting new loan – ‘Les Baigneurs, Petite Planche’, an 1896-7 lithograph by Paul Cézanne – this display explores a pivotal point in French avant-garde art.

The artist made only nine prints across the whole of his career, two of which are in the Barber’s collection. The three prints together form a group enabling significant insight into Cézanne’s experiments in printmaking.

Contextualising his work, prints by other major French artists will also be represented – including lithographs by Manet and Vuillard, and etchings by Millet and Renoir.
