THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART - Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street.
[[indented text]] [[underlined]] Cezanne [[/underlined]] - 125 works by the great 19th century master, often referred to as the "Father of Modern Art".  A loan exhibition of international scope organized by the Metropolitan Museum in cooperation with the Art Institute of Chicago, where it was presented last month.  Museums and private collections of four continents have contributed such paintings as the "Portrait of Louis-Auguste Cezanne", the artist's father, "Bather and Rocks", "The Murder" and "Paul Alexis Reading to Zola", characteristic of his youthful talent.  Examples of his work showing the influence of the Impressionists and more especially Monet and Pissarro are to be found in "Village Panorama" and the still-life entitled "The Black Clock", while his mature genius is represented by numerous Provence landscapes and portraits of his wife and the last oil he painted, "Le Cabanon de Jourdan".  An entire gallery is given over to watercolors and two sketch books. [[/indented text]]
