She is the author of Cézanne’s Early Imagery (UC Berkeley;1989); Cézanne: Art and Ideas (Phaidon, London; 2000), and was the editor and a contributor to Critical Readings in Impressionism and Post-Impressionism: An Anthology (UC Berkeley; 2007). Her most recent publication, Paul Cézanne: Painting People (Princeton Univ.; 2017), grew out of her involvement in the 2017-18 exhibition of Cézanne Portraits that was shown at the Musée d’Orsay, the National Portrait Gallery in London, and the National Gallery, Washington DC.
