Cézanne is one of the most influential artists of his time. He is recognized for his important works in redefining the Impressionist movement and is often considered the father of Modernism, even by some of the most quintessential Modern artists, like Picasso. The painter connected a bridge between the late 19th-century art and the early 20th-century.
This painting completed in1895 is one of the examples why the 20th-century Cubists turned their attention to Cézanne and incorporated so many of his ideas into the new art. This painting has a very relevant characteristic, almost a trademark that Cézanne used in more than one piece: the impossible table. The table is off perspective, and the left side and right side of it can be placed in different planes. Everything in this piece represents a version of reality but is portrayed in a colorful and interesting way. Cézanne would talk extensively about how the role of art is not to portray exactly what the artist is looking at, but represent reality in a different perspective of shapes and colors.
On top of the ocher table, there are several objects placed over a white tablecloth. The cloth is folded, and despite Cézanne's abstract approach, we can see the careful and detailed work he did on the drapery, creating beautiful movement and perfect folds. There is an interesting shading with blue and beige on this fabric.
There are three elements around the fruits: A basket, a bottle, and a plate. All of them are tilted and off perspective, and yet, they create a certain balance among them and with the table.
The round basket on the left is tilted, so the fruits are falling from it and onto the table. There is also a beautiful light and shadow work on the basket, with such thick brushstrokes that it creates the texture of wattle.
By its side, there is the tilted bottle. It is turned a little bit towards the basket, but perfectly balanced on top of the table, as if the bottle itself was crooked. Its dark shades of moss green communicate that this is a wine bottle, and the brushwork in it is also so complex that we can see perfectly the texture of the glass.
The apples are in the basket and spread all over the table. They were painted in vibrant tones of green and yellow and red. This color configuration shows very ripe, bright, and plump fruits. The colors are vibrant and lively, putting the pomes on the spotlight of this painting.
