About the Book

The Pixels of Paul Cezanne is a collection of essays by Wim Wenders in which he presents his observations and reflections on the fellow artists who have influenced, shaped, and inspired him.

"How are they doing it?" is the key question that Wenders asks as he looks at the dance work of Pina Bausch, the paintings of Cezanne, Edward Hopper, and Andrew Wyeth, as well as the films of Ingmar Bergman, Michelanelo Antonioni, Ozu, Anthony Mann, Douglas Sirk, and Sam Fuller.

He finds the answer by trying to understand their individual perspectives, and, in the process revealing his own art of perception in texts of rare poignancy.

  • Wim Wenders

    Wim Wenders is the distinguished director of Paris, Texas and Wings of Desire, as well as The American Friend. For Faber he has published three volumes of essays, which have been collected together into one volume, titled On Film. He has also written My Time with Antonioni, which chronicles his experience working with Antonioni on Beyond the Clouds.

“As a film director, Wenders’s way of seeing tends towards the poetically enigmatic, often imbuing the quotidian with a luminous beauty… On the page, he is more matter-of-fact, employing a low-key, almost conversational style which moves from the anecdotal to the often keenly descriptive, but always with Wenders’s own, often singular thoughts on the subject foregrounded.”
- Observer
“'[An] illuminating collection . . . These eloquent and insightful essays celebrate the transformational power of seeing and aspire to reclaim that “lost paradise” where “watching was being”.”
- Guardian
