About Still Life with Apples

The artwork “Still Life with Apples” is an oil on canvas painting by Paul Cezanne, created in the year 1894. It measures 46 by 55 centimeters and embodies the Post-Impressionist movement. As a still life, it exemplifies the genre with its detailed depiction of inanimate objects. The painting is currently held in a private collection.

This work by Cezanne features a selection of apples arranged both on a plate and scattered around it. The composition also includes a cup and saucer, as well as what appears to be a folded piece of cloth or a book, situated on a tabletop which gives an impression of depth and perspective. The background exhibits a restrained use of tones, with the objects meticulously rendered to emphasize their volume and form through subtle shifts in color and light. Cezanne’s distinctive brushstrokes and his exploration of the spatial relationships between objects within the artwork reveal his influential approach to still life painting, which contributed to the transition from 19th-century Impressionism to the development of 20th-century Cubism.
