Paris: Galerie Pigalle, 1929. 1st Edition. Quarto, publisher's stiff illustrated paper wraps.
Catalog published to accompany a posthumous exhibition of work by the Post-Impressionist painter held at the Galerie Pigalle in Paris in 1929. Curated by French art dealer Ambroise Vollard, the show presented a small selection of Cézanne's later works. One of the most influential figures in the French art world, Vollard is credited for discovering Picasso, Matisse, and Cézanne, whom he rescued from relative obscurity in 1885 when he organized his first solo exhibition. This catalog includes an extensive introduction by Vollard, a chronological biography, index of lenders, and eight tissue-guarded black-and-white plates, including a self-portrait and the unfinished masterpiece "The Bathers" (1906). Publisher's addenda slip laid in. Some chipping to spine-ends, light edgewear. Very good. Item #7997
