This oil on canvas, produced between the years of 1890 and 1894, depicts a still life. We can observe a couple of apples, oranges, and lemons on a place, spread on top of a table along with a jug, representing a significant painting for the artist's career. First, the subject matter was an important part of Cézanne's studies, and there are several pieces and studies with diverse objects occupying the surface of a disorganized tabletop.
This painting specifically shows a cool colored background. The palette on the wall on the back (possibly covered by some sort of cloth or curtain), is similar to the palette chosen for the table cloth. The shades of blue are faded and smooth, and they are very subtle. On the back, there is a vigorous brushwork. The strokes change direction like a wave, creating the sensation of the form of this drapery.
On the table cloth, the brush strokes are more subtle, and the details are more relevant. The fabric is colored in shades of light and dark blue and has an exciting pattern.
The still life is placed on top of the table, off-center, occupying most of the right-hand side of the painting. It stands out vigorously, as the warm and bright colors of the fruits contrast with the background. It is interesting to notice how Cézanne would work with mostly lightened up pieces, where there is not a sharp contrast. But the delicate work with light and shadow is always intricate so that we can define the forms and shapes and even the texture of the elements.
The fruits are painted in tones of bright orange, red, and yellow. Some green patches help bring into evidence the luscious fresh state of these fruits. Cézanne himself would have said at some point that he would rather paint fruits than flowers because fruits would take longer to fade.
Behind the fruits, there is the jug. It is colored in an interesting shade between the brown and lilac. The patches of dark and white color make the pitcher look like it was made of shiny and smooth material. It has an interesting ornamented handle.
This is a very relevant piece, as several other studies from other artists were made using it as a reference.
