Paul Cézanne: The Stoneware Pitcher
The Stoneware Pitcher is a beautiful example of one of Cézanne’s favourite themes – the still life. The curves of the Stoneware pitcher and the apples, as well as the folds of the cloth, have been rendered with extraordinary plasticity reminiscent of the classical still lifes by Chardin. Yet the further one explores the depiction, the more ambiguous the relationship between the sense of space and the pictorial plane becomes. This work is now located in the Beyeler Foundation in Switzerland.
