Still Life with a Ginger Jar and Eggplants

Paul Cézanne French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 826

For this commanding still life, with its richly orchestrated play of overlapping shapes, patterns, colors, and textures, Cézanne relied on a stock of familiar objects. The raffia-corded ginger jar, for example, is featured in more than a dozen compositions, including three of comparable verve dating to the early 1890s.
