«Cézanne, site / non-site» at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid.
For the first Cézanne retrospective held in Spain for thirty years,
the Thyssen Bornemisza Museum is bringing together some sixty pieces of artwork by the painter. A predominant theme in Cézanne’s work, the exhibition focuses heavily on landscapes and more particularly, rubbing shoulders with an all-together different genre, still life. Throughout his career, Cézanne produced both one and the other, which is evidence of his close relationship with nature, but also of a more introspective work. The subtitle of the exhibition, “site / non-site” refers to the juxtaposition between inside and outside, painting in fresh air and in the studio.
From 4 February to 18 May
