Maitreyabandhu Launch Reading
After Cézanne is a sequence of fifty-six poems exploring the life and work of the post-impressionist painter Paul Cézanne. Reimagining his friendships with Zola and Pissarro, his impact on Matisse and Picasso, as well as his posthumous reputation, Maitreyabandhu celebrates Cézanne’s apples and card players in poems at once tender, urgent and amused. The book includes twenty-five colour reproductions and a preface by Christopher Lloyd (Surveyor of the Queen’s Pictures, 1988-2005).
