This engaging summary presents an analysis of His Masterpiece by Émile Zola, which follows the painter Claude Lantier as he struggles to gain recognition for his work in the face of an uncomprehending public, leading to the breakdown of his relationships and driving him to despair. The novel, which was inspired in large part by its author’s friendship with the Impressionist painter Paul Cézanne, is the fourteenth instalment of Les Rougon-Macquart, an ambitious cycle of 20 novels which tells the story of one extended family under the Second French Empire. Émile Zola was the leading figure of the literary school of naturalism, as well as an influential social thinker, and is now regarded as one of France’s greatest novelists.
