Paul Cézanne

Still Life with Apples and Pears

About the Artwork

Still Life with Apples and Pears, ca. 1891-92. Paul Cézanne. Oil on canvas. Bequest of Stephen C. Clark, 1960.
Cézanne once proclaimed, "With an apple I want to astonish Paris," and he succeeded, even in his most deceptively simple still lifes, to dazzle and delight. Turning to the Provençal apples and Beurré Diel pears grown in the vicinity of the family’s estate near Aix, he dispensed with traditional one-point perspective and examined the fruit, plates, and table from various viewpoints—straight on, above, and sideways.
