Cézanne and the Modern Ashmolean, Oxford

One of the best, most personal small American collections, gathered by Henry Pearlman in the 1940s-70s, visits Europe for the first time. The stellar, rare group of Cézanne watercolours alone make the show worth visiting.

Pearlman also loved Chaim Soutine, represented in depth – whirling Ceret landscapes, portraits, a shrill still life of a hanging turkey – and explored impressionism and modernism through a singular focus on unusual works by Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin, Modigliani. Final fortnight.
