【本の紹介】
It is truly remarkable that in his letter to Émile Zola dated April 14, 1878, Cézanne described the Mont Sainte-Victoire seen from a speeding train as “what a beautiful motif.” Cézanne was gradually realizing the transformation of visual perception brought about by the railway as one of his “sensations.”

【本の紹介】
It was generally surmised that since Cézanne was an ardent lover of nature, he fled Paris that was undergoing rapid modernization and retreated to the pure nature of Aix-en-Provence, his hometown in the countryside. Although this discourse might be factual to some extent, it certainly does not represent the essential Cézanne. An impartial research on his life and works will confirm that Cézanne used the railway on a daily basis and painted many railway subjects in Aix-en-Provence.
