Still Life with Jar, Cup, and Apples

Paul Cézanne French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 826

In addition to apples—a favorite motif of Cézanne’s—the ceramic jar and cup seen in this still life feature in numerous paintings by the artist. The wallpaper in the background appears in six works that he painted about 1877, when he rented an apartment at 67 rue de l’Ouest, Paris. Its pattern is echoed both by the shape of the white cloth on which the everyday items are arranged and by the painted floral decoration on the front of the wooden chest.
