Cezanne catalog "At the Courtauld," London Review of Books -- With the tightly focused exhibition "Cézanne's Card Players" opening Wednesday at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, now is a good time to read (or re-read) T.J. Clark's marvelously provocative take on the show.

When it had its debut last year at London's Courtauld Gallery, the self-described "Cézanne worshiper" wrote: Cézanne "cannot be written about anymore."
