T.J Clarke, Pissarro, Cezanne – and me
words selected and read by Deb Catesby
‘Cezanne was sitting on the grass, watching him.’
I spent the early morning of October 7th with critic T.J.Clarke* as he dissected the relationship between two great artists.
As a painter in the 21st Century, that dissection struck me as being worth trying to understand.
The words I use belong either to Clarke, Pissarro or Cezanne.
