The unity of drawing and color in Cézanne’s work discloses the ambiguity of man’s being-in-the-world: not subjectum, at whose glance the ruled universe ‘draws’ itself in clarity and distinctness; neither impoverished subject, irremediably consecrated to non-sense. The space in the work of Cézanne, who definitively renounces the planimetric perspective, reveals itself as a space of mutual structuration between subject and object. Meditating on this lesson, Merleau-Ponty finds the way to overcome classical dualisms, revealing the man-world unity in the mistery of the gaze. Through ontology tries the philosopher to modify the premises of western culture, showing the interlocking, medley, endless exchange beetween distinct terms.
