Still lifes of the famous French painter, Paul Cezanne are always recognizable. He became a pioneer in post-impressionism.
He wrote 59 paintings from the period from 1883–195, and by the end of the twentieth century, he became a full personification of the expression of this genre.
The most famous masters of impressionism took him to their students, which radically influenced his future fate in self-realization in this direction. Under their influence, in the search for an individual style, he went much further than his teachers.
Having learned the skillful skill of conveying the richness and splendor of the state of nature, he began to study in depth the basics of the shaping of all surrounding objects, plants and much more. He was interested in the internal logic of things, but his peculiar approach could not allow him to gain well-deserved fame and success. Only later was he recognized.
In a still life, work with color is most expressively reflected. So, a white tablecloth, like a snow cover, emphasizes the juiciness of natural gifts. An elegant white porcelain vase complements the picture and gives it the completeness of the entire theme.
White color always visually “pulls” the composition to the center and concentrates the look, introducing a certain severity in its color scheme. The impression of highlighting the fruit from the inside is created, creating a feeling of their reality.
He always sought to achieve the paramount value of natural gifts through the simplest examples of images on canvas.
The fruits painted in this picture are in the center of attention of the artist due to their simple but attractive forms of fruits, as well as their variety in type.
All the fruits that the master depicted in his paintings aroused a desire not to taste them, and to try to recreate it himself is just as wonderful as he did.
