Celebrating the extraordinary collection of drawings and prints by Paul Cézanne. On loan to the Whitworth, the exhibition is the first in the UK since 1973 to focus only on Cézanne’s works and includes a version of every print produced by the artist. Widely considered one of the most influential artists of the 19th century and known for his approach to building form with colour, the exhibition places focus on his drawings and prints. His personal drawings were never exhibited during his lifetime and were only discovered after his death which have giving a new insight into the complex nature of his practice.
