Paul Cézanne believed that drawing taught him to ‘see well’, and the post-Impressionist’s works on paper often reveal him at his most innovative and daring. This display of some 250 works at MoMA (6 June–25 September) ranges from translucent watercolours to bold essays in linear perspective, and across Cézanne’s long career. Find out more from MoMA’s website.
