Cézanne and the Modern is one of the newest exhibits at the Princeton University Art Museum (PUAM). Henry and Rose Pearlman have one of the finest collections of works to be held by a single family, and PUAM has the honor of displaying the entire collection.
Henry Pearlman began collecting modern art since the mid-1940s. He combined his love of art, his exceptional eye, and a acute business sense to form one of the great collections of modern art in the United States. Cézanne’s works were clearly his favorite, having collected six paintings and 16 watercolors by this master.
The works have returned to Princeton after a record-breaking year and a half long international tour to Oxford, Aix-en-Provence (Cézanne’s hometown), Atlanta, and Vancouver. Some waited in long lines to see this collection, which is stunning, and a must see.
This is an occasional opportunity to view lesser-known works from Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Vincent Van Gogh, and Amedeo Modigliani, as well as watercolors, oil paintings, and drawings by Paul Cézanne.
Cézanne and the Modern offers an opportunity to admire great Impressionism and Post-Impressionism works, as well as appreciate art collecting. Visit the Princeton University Art Museum through January 3, 2016 to witness masterpieces of European art from the Pearlman Collection.
