Il Cesto di mele

Basket of Apples

The original work is dated 1895 and is kept at the Art Institute of Chicago, USA. The artist paints an apple basket tilted on a table. Next to it, Cézanne represents a bottle and a white plate containing biscuits. In the foreground, spread out on a white tablecloth with brown motifs, other apples are scattered. All the elements of the painting are painted roughly: the painter's goal is to represent objects by eliminating superfluous details and thus simplifying their shapes, without dwelling on details.

The original work is dated 1895 and is kept at the Art Institute of Chicago, USA. This canvas is part of a long series of "still lives" created by Cézanne during his artistic life. With "still life" we mean a pictorial genre that depicts inanimate objects. The artist paints an apple basket tilted on a table. Next to it, Cézanne represents a bottle and a white plate containing biscuits. In the foreground, spread out on a white tablecloth with brown motifs, other apples are scattered. All the elements of the painting are painted roughly: the painter's goal is to represent objects by eliminating superfluous details and thus simplifying their shapes, without dwelling on details. Observing the picture, it is difficult to recognize if the fruits are apples: Cézanne does not give us real "signs of recognition" to identify the fruits, which could be easily exchanged for peaches or onions. He paints slowly: each stroke comes from a careful analysis and from the research to simplify the forms that exist in nature. Cézanne experiments the perspective in an original way: the table tilts forward gives us the sensation that the fruits are about to fall at any moment; the right side and the left side do not match each other, to make it appear that the image is reflecting at the same time two different points of view; the bottle and the basket, placed close together, hang in opposite directions, creating a sense of instability. As for colour too, the painter introduces an innovative technique: the brush strokes are given in spots, creating the effect of many small mosaic tiles placed close to each other. A revolutionary and daring artist, so little understood and sometimes ridiculed by his contemporaries, he affirmed in a provocative tone "of wanting to amaze Paris with an apple", fruit symbol of simplicity and humility, characters that distinguished the painter also in life.
