A celebration of the artists that have inspired the work of Wim Wenders

The Pixels of Paul Cezanne is a collection of essays by Wim Wenders 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 questions Wenders asks as he looks at the dance work of Pina Bausch, the paintings of Cezanne, Edward Hopper of Andrew Wyeth, or the films of Ingmar Bergman, Michelanelo Antonioni, Ozu, Anthony Mann, Douglas Sirk and Sam Fuller.

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