About Apples

The artwork “Apples” was created by Albert Joseph Moore in 1875, in the United Kingdom. It is an oil on canvas painting, measuring 50.8 x 29.2 cm, and is currently part of a private collection. This work belongs to the Academicism movement and is classified as a genre painting.

In the painting, we see two women reclining gracefully on a chaise lounge, with their bodies draped in flowing, classical robes. Each figure lies at opposite ends of the lounge, facing away from each other, and they appear to be in a state of rest or sleep. The woman on the left has auburn hair and she props her head up with her arm, while the one on the right, with similar hair color, lets her arm hang down the side of the lounge. The environment is serene, with intricately patterned textiles and decorative elements such as a fan, vase, and fallen apples, which helps to create a harmonious and tranquil composition. The use of delicate tones and a refined execution are characteristic of Moore’s style and reinforce the thematic aspect of calm repose within the genre painting tradition.
