In 1969, the artist Robert Smithson proposed a new interpretation of the work of Paul Cezanne (1839-1906).
In Smithson's view, Cezanne's painting had been distorted by the Cubists, reduced to an almost abstract play of forms. In contrast to this formalist simplification, Smithson underlined the need to recover the physical reference in Cezanne's work, his strong link to certain places in Provence.
Published on the occasion of a major exhibition on Cezanne - Site/Non-Site celebrates the work of a foundational figure in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century painting who is widely regarded as the father of modern art. The term "site/non-site" evokes a pair of concepts that were coined by Smithson in connection with his own oeuvre and explores the dialectic between outdoor and studio practice, which Cezanne cultivated throughout his career. Landscape is the dominant genre in Cezanne's work, identified with the practice of plein-air painting. But unlike his Impressionist contemporaries, he also attaches decisive importance to a genre characteristic of the studio: still life.
