Michel Kellermann. André Derain: Catalogue Raisonné de l'œuvre peint. Vol. 1, 1895–1914. Paris, 1992, p. 167, no. 275, ill., calls it "Nature morte aux fruits" and dates it about 1907–8.

Richard Shone. The Janice H. Levin Collection of French Art. Exh. cat., The Metropolitan Museum of Art. New York, 2002, pp. 5, 10, 128–31, no. 34, ill. (color), dates it about 1903–4; states that it is related to a large still life of 1904 (private collection, Paris; probably Kellermann 270), which was a tribute to Cézanne, noting that the plate of two peaches on the right of that large still life "seems to have been developed from" the MMA work.
