Paul Cezanne – Still life with flowers and fruits

Artist

Paul Cezanne

Artwork

Still life with flowers and fruits (original title: “Fleurs dans un pot de gingembre et fruits”) was created between 1888 and 1890. It measures 82 x 65.5 cm (width x height). Cezanne painted around 170 still images in the 80s. The contents stayed the same but the objects were arranged differently: a table with a tablecloth, flowers, a container and fruits.

Brief description

A wooden table. On the table lays a snatched up table cloth with yellow and green pears scattered on it. On the right edge of the table is a light blue braided glass jar with a handle, in which a more lush bouquet of summer flowers such as red poppies, white margaritas and other garden flowers lies. The separation of shades of colours is noticeable in the background. It’s divided into two parts: the left: an almost black, lightless part and the right: the light part. The light half suggests a door to the outside or window nearby. The intense occupation with the theme still life – Cezanne painted over 170 of them, they portrayed the same contents, just in another arrangement - makes Cezanne’s attempts to pierce the facets of objects, natural or artificial, obvious. He relieves them of their normal function and constantly presents them in a new fashion. Cezanne preferred to underline the pure condition of the body itself, by diffusing the light in his studio.

Genre & Material

Painting of impressionism, painted with oil on a canvas.
