The Kupferstichkabinett of the Kunstmuseum Basel possesses the most comprehensive and significant collection of drawings by Paul Cézanne, with a total of 154 sheets. These provide the foundation for an extensive exhibition of more than 200 works that thematize the importance of drawing in the entirety of Cézanne's oeuvre, from the sketches and studies, to the watercolors and the paintings. As the starting point and core of the artistic process, the drawings turn out to be a particularly fruitful aspect of Cézanne's production to examine. Our international symposium takes the exhibition as a starting point to engage in a discussion about this aspect of Cézanne's work, which surprisingly has been rarely studied.

A cooperation between the eikones NCCR Iconic Criticism, the University of Basel and the Kunstmuseum Basel. With friendly support of Sulger-Stiftung.
