Cézanne at the Whitworth

24 August 2019–1 March 2020

Cézanne at the Whitworth celebrates an extraordinary collection of drawings and prints by Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) that has been gifted and placed on long-term loan to the Whitworth by gallerist, collector, author and publisher Karsten Schubert. This important act of generosity means that the Whitworth now holds the best collection of Cézanne works on paper in the United Kingdom

 

An exhibition catalogue published by Ridinghouse in association with the Whitworth accompanies the show. With a lead essay by renowned Impressionist scholar Richard Thomson on the significance of the loans to the Whitworth’s collection of nineteenth-century drawings and contributions by Elizabeth Cowling, Yuval Etgar, Rosalind McKever, Karsten Schubert, Colin Wiggins and Edward Wouk.
