Om His Masterpiece
The Masterpiece is a highly fictionalized account of Zolas friendship with the painter Paul Cezanne. Zola and Cezanne grew up together in Aix-en-Provence, the model for Zolas Plassans, where Claude Lantier is born and receives his education. Like Cezanne, Claude Lantier is a revolutionary artist whose work is misunderstood by an art-going public hidebound by traditional subjects, techniques, and representations. Zolas self-portrait can be seen in the character of the novelist Pierre Sandoz.
