About Still life with pitcher and apples

The artwork titled “Still Life with Pitcher and Apples” is a creation by the esteemed artist Pablo Picasso, dating back to the year 1919. The piece reflects the Neoclassical movement and is a still life genre painting. The dimensions of this artwork are 65 cm in height by 43 cm in width.

The painting depicts a classical setting of still life, featuring a white ceramic pitcher centrally placed on a flat surface. Atop the pitcher rests a plate bearing three rounded apples which exhibit hues of yellow and brown, hinting at textured ripeness. To its right, the artwork shows a single apple that appears to have rolled off the plate, and on the opposite side, there’s another apple, all positioned against a subdued, nondescript background. The painting is characterized by muted colors, soft lighting, and careful attention to detail and shading, which all contribute to creating a sense of volume and three-dimensionality in the white pitcher and the fruit. Through the softened contours and calm composition, Picasso infuses the artwork with an air of simple elegance typical of the Neoclassical movement.
