    • 30 That his inability to deliver his work to his subscribers caused him profound suffering is revealed in his letters to John Stevens Cogdell of 27 February 1832 and Leonard Jarvis of 24 June 1836: Flagg, Life and Letters, pp. 258-61, 288-89. OK?

    • 2 See Paul Smith, 'Paul Cézanne's Primitive Self and Related Fictions', in Charles G. Salas (ed.), The Life and the Work: Art History and Biography (Los Angeles: Getty Research Institute, 2007), pp??. This draws heavily on Hans Sluga, '“Whose House is That?”: Wittgenstein on the Self', in Hans Sluga and David Stern (eds), The Cambridge Companion to Wittgenstein (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1996), pp. 320-53.
    • 3 For critiques of the primitivist aesthetic, see e.g. Meyer Schapiro, 'The Nature of Abstract Art', Marxist Quarterly, I (January-March 1937), pp. 77-98; Robert Harbison, Deliberate Regression: The Disastrous History of Romantic Individualism in Thought and Art, from Jean-Jacques Rousseau to Twentieth-Century Fascism (New York: Knopf, 1980); Sally Price, Primitive Art in Civilized Places (Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1989); Hal Foster, 'The “Primitive” Unconscious of Modern Art', October, XXXIV (autumn 1985), pp. 45-70; Abigail Solomon-Goudeau, 'Going Native: Paul Gauguin and the Invention of Primitivist Modernism', Art in America, LXXVII/7 (July 1989), pp. 119-61; Susan Hiller (ed.), The Myth of Primitivism: Perspectives on Art (London: Routledge, 1992); Gill Perry, 'Primitivism and “The Modern”', in Charles Harrison, Francis Frascina, and Gill Perry, Primitivism, Cubism, Abstraction: The Early Twentieth Century (New Haven: Yale University Press in association with the Open University, 1993), pp. 3-85; Rhodes, Primitivism and Modern Art; Mark Antliff and Patricia Leighten, 'Primitive', in Robert S.

    • 7 See Sluga, 'Whose House?'
    • 8 The ensuing argument has an affinity with, and perhaps some parentage in, Kant's aesthetics. Kant argues, for example, that 'genius' is capable of 'originality', and of 'producing that for which no definite rule can be given', i.e. 'original nonsense'. Hence, for him, the 'products' of genius are 'models', or 'exemplary', and 'serve ... as a standard or rule of estimating'. Kant also argues: 'it is nature (the nature of the individual) ... that in products of genius gives the rule to art.' See Immanuel Kant, The Critique of Judgement (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1986 [1928]), §46 and §57, remark I.
    • 9 Wittgenstein argues: 'the meaning of a word is its use in the language' and 'to imagine a language means to imagine a form of life'; see Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations (Oxford: Blackwell, 1995 [1953]), §43 and §19. See also e.g. David Bloor, Wittgenstein: a Social Theory of Knowledge (Basingstoke: Macmillan, 1983), pp. 22-49; Oswald Hanfling, Wittgenstein's Later Philosophy (Basingstoke: Macmillan, 1989), pp. 42-48; and Marie McGinn, Wittgenstein and the Philosophical Investigations (London: Routledge, 1997), pp. 82-88.

    • 11 See Shiff, Cézanne, pp. 283-84 for a list of references to Cézanne's 'primitive' nature in contemporary criticism. Gustave Geffroy (whose criticism is cited below) seems to have been the first to call Cézanne 'un primitif', while Emile Bernard appears to have been the first to connect Cézanne and the primitive, having mentioned Cézanne's 'haies primitives' in Les hommes d'aujourd'hui, VIII/387 (February-March 1891).

    • 20 For a view of the irreducibility of works of art to artists' statements about them not wholly incompatible with Wittgenstein's thinking, see Mark Roskill, The Interpretation of Cubism (Philadelphia: Art Alliance Press, 1984), pp. 189-95.
    • 21 See Richard Wollheim, Painting as an Art (London: Thames & Hudson, 1987), pp. 17-19. On 'intention in action', see Ludwig Wittgenstein, Notebooks 1914-1916 (Oxford: Blackwell, 1979 [1961]), 4.11.16, and Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, §615.

    • 23 See Maurice Merleau-Ponty, 'Cézanne's Doubt', in Galen A. Johnson and Michael B. Smith (eds), The Merleau-Ponty Aesthetics Reader: Philosophy and Painting (Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 1993), pp. 59-75 (especially 65). Cf. Maurice Merleau-Ponty, The Phenomenology of Perception (London: Routledge, 1996 [1962]), p. 218; and The Visible and the Invisible (Evanston, IL: Northwestern University Press, 2000 [1968]), p. 133.

    • 27 See Merleau-Ponty, 'Cézanne's Doubt', pp. 63-64.
    • 28 Cézanne confessed in later life that he had attempted to do 'peinture couillarde' in his early work. See Vollard, En écoutant Cézanne, Degas, Renoir (Paris: Grasset, 1938), p. 20.
    • 29 Reported in Emile Bernard, 'Julien Tanguy', Mercure de France, LXXVI/276 (16 December 1908), pp. 600- 16 (this quotation, 607).

    • 31 See John Hyman, 'The Urn and the Chamber-Pot', in Richard Allen and Malcolm Turvey (eds), Wittgenstein, Theory and the Arts (London: Routledge, 2001), pp. 137-52.
    • 32 Aesthetic value is transcendental because it belongs entirely to the 'willing' subject, which is not part of the world, but is a solipsistic perspective on to the world from which it is detached; see Wittgenstein, Notebooks, 21.7.16, 2.8.16, 5.8.16, and 4.11.16, and Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (London: Routledge, 1974 [1922]), 5.631, and 6.41-6.421, and 6.522. See Carolyn Wilde, 'Aesthetics and Ethics are One', in P. Lewis (ed.), Wittgenstein, Aesthetics and Philosophy (Aldershot: Ashgate, 2004), pp. 165-84. Cf. Hyman, 'The Urn', pp. 147-48. Cf. Culture and Value, 6e-7e for a remark of 1930 connecting value in art with its ability to show things 'sub specie aeterni' (and 85e for a remark of 1948, which returns to the idea). Cf. 91e-92e.
    • 33 It is thus to be contrasted to those lines of thought that (like the notion of 'intention in action') first emerge in the early, Tractarian, writings and then migrate more or less unchanged into the later writings. It is also different from those arguments that (like the 'private language' argument) find embryonic expression in the early work, but leave a recognizable, mature descendant in later writings. See Cora Diamond, 'Does Bismark Have a Beetle in his Box?', in Alice Crary and Rupert Read (eds), The New Wittgenstein (London: Routledge, 2000), pp. 262-92.
    • 34 See e.g. Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, 174e. For my understanding of this argument, I am greatly indebted to Barry Curtis, 'Forms of Life and Other Minds', Proceedings of the 20th Anniversary Austrian Wittgenstein Symposium (1998), pp. 123-28.
    • 35 See e.g. Ludwig Wittgenstein, Zettel (Oxford: Blackwell, 1981 [1967]), §541.
    • 36 See e.g. Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, §244, and Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Occasions 1912-1951 (Indianapolis: Hackett, 1993), §381.

    • 38 Cf. Ludwig Wittgenstein, On Certainty (Oxford: Blackwell, 1969), §475 (and §359).

    • 42 Ibid., II, §10. Cf. ibid., II, §15.
    • 43 This view, or modified form of it, is of course fundamental to much psychoanalytical aesthetics. See e.g. Hannah Segal, 'A Psychoanalytic Approach to Aesthetics', in J. Phillips and L. Stonebridge, Reading Melanie Klein (London: Routledge, 1998), pp. 203-22 (especially 208-09).
    • 44 See John Willats, Art and Representation: New Principles in the Analysis of Pictures (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1997), pp. 272-73.
    • 45 Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, §§241-2. Wittgenstein's point is logical, not empirical: he only claims that such behaviours are shared by the broad run of human beings. Since being human is a matter of possessing enough of the right kind of features that make up the 'family resemblances' between humans, an inability to respond with concern to the pain of others, or to painting, does not on its own make someone inhuman. Moreover, Wittgenstein says nothing to suggest that different individuals will not attenuate, or develop, different primitive forms of life, to different degrees.

    • 51 Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, 198e.
    • 52 Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, §580. In this sense, a criterion is akin to an 'ausserung' (expression' or 'utterance') of an inner experience, which is not identifable independently. See Cooper, 'Ineffability', p. 224, citing Stephen Mulhall, On Being in the World: Wittgenstein and Heidegger on Seeing Aspects (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1990), pp. 11-12. Cf.

For one thing, my 'red' could be your 'blue'. See Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Occasions, §231. Blind people can also use colour terms perfectly correctly.
    • 61 Colour words often do not call colours to mind when used, or do so only adventitiously, or else by grace of describing something else (as when they identify a colour-sample). Cf. Philosophical Investigations, §244 (on how words 'do not describe' pain).

    • 72 Gasquet reports Cézanne making this remark in respect of one of his Mont Sainte-Victoire paintings, probably the painting of c. 1885-88 now in the Courtauld Institute, which the artist gave him. See Gasquet, Cézanne, pp. 130-31.
    • 74 Baudelaire, in his 'Salon de 1859', also attributes the expressiveness of Corot's paintings to their ability to capture the proportions of 'la structure humaine'.

    • 77 The difference between my sense of my own pain and my sense of other people's pain is revealed in everyday language, where it makes no sense to say 'I know I am in pain' (except in exceptional circumstances), but it does make sense to say 'I know' someone else in pain. This is because we can only know things we can also legitimately doubt; and while we can doubt the pain of others, we can not (normally) doubt our own. See Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations, §246, §288, §303, §§403-8, and p. 221e. See also, McGinn, Wittgenstein, pp. 171-73.

    • 79 Cf. Wittgenstein, On Certainty, §160. See also, Grayling, Wittgenstein, pp. 95-96.
    • 80 In a letter of 21 September 1906, Cézanne told Bernard that the techniques of art were 'que de simples moyens pour arriver à faire sentir au public ce que nous ressentons nous-mêmes et à nous faire agréer.' See Cézanne, Correspondance, p. 327. Cf. Gasquet, Cézanne, p. 143.
    • 81 Cézanne told Bernard in 1904: 'L'art ne s'addresse qu'à un nombre excessivement restreint d'individus.' See Emile Bernard, 'Paul Cézanne', L'Occident, 32 (July 1904), p. 28.
    • 82 Late in life, Cézanne told Bernard: 'Etre peintre par les qualités mêmes de la peinture, se servir de matériaux grossiers.' See Bernard, 'Souvenirs', p. 400. Cézanne also confided to Rivière and Schnerb: 'Je voulais peindre en pleine pâte, comme Courbet'. See Rivière and Schnerb, 'L'atelier', p. 817.
    • 83 See Edmond and Jules de Goncourt, Manette Salomon (Paris: Lacroix, Verboekhoven & Cie, 1867), Vol. 2, chapter XLIV. Cézanne expressed an enthusiasm for this text on several occasions. See Charles Camoin, 'Souvenirs sur Paul Cézanne', L'Amour de l'art (1920), p. 26; (and citing this) Léo Larguier, Le dimanche avec Cézanne (Paris: L'Edition, 1925), pp. 89-90; Vollard, En écoutant, p. 78; Gasquet, Cézanne, pp. 70 and 110; and Robert Ratcliffe, 'Cézanne's Working Methods' (University of London, unpublished PhD thesis, 1960), pp. 371-72 , which draws this evidence together.
    • 84 Cézanne was attuned to the decorative dimension of painting. In a letter of 3 February 1902 to Charles Camoin, he spoke of the desirability of making copies after 'les grands maîtres décoratifs, Véronèse et Rubens'. See Cézanne, Correspondance, p. 280.

Other witnesses, whose recollections were published in the Report of the Sub-Committee of the Old Rugbeian Society in 1897, give a different picture. The Reverend Thomas Harris, for example, recalled: 'Our Laws in those days were unwritten and traditionary, so that I can give no authority beyond custom', adding that 'running with the ball was distinctly forbidden'. Thomas Hughes, admittedly some years his junior, recalls differently, stating that 'running with the ball ... was not absolutely forbidden'. And according to the Old Rugbeian Committee Report, handling had a 'doubtful legality' until 1841-42, See Macrory, Running, pp. 26-27, and 34-45. Different schools also observed different rules of football at the time, which may have occasionally added to the flexibility of the rules observed at Rugby. These were eventually written down only in 1845. See Macrory, Running, p. 86.
