Paul Cézanne French

Not on view

This composition combines two separate studies that are unrelated to any known painting by Cézanne. The brownish tone that covers areas at the lower left and along the right edge may have been added by Cézanne’s dealer, Ambroise Vollard, who sold this picture to the painter Édouard Vuillard in exchange for one of the artist’s own works. The present canvas is thought to date to 1878–79, but 1883–87 has also been proposed.

Apples, Paul Cézanne (French, Aix-en-Provence 1839–1906 Aix-en-Provence), Oil on canvas
