The Courtauld Cézannes

Paul Cézanne - Still Life With Plaster Cast (1894) © The Samuel Courtauld TrustIn the Somerset House e-newsletter for July, the Courtauld Institute of Art proclaims "75 years opening minds to art" with an arrogance which only the Brit. Anti-art Establishment could assume. To celebrate 75 years of patronizing the masses in London, it is displaying for the first time its entire collection of works by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) including rarely seen drawings and watercolours. The Courtauld Cézannes opened yesterday and continues until 5 October. Running in tandem is French Prints From Manet to Picasso. Admission is steep for third-rate art.
