          In this painting Cezanne combines several different viewpoints of the jug and fruit. Cezanne often painted the same still life over and over again as he believed that this would enhance his perspective and visual sensations. He believed that using just one viewpoint for still life did not reflect how we perceive objects and the world around us. Like many of his works, it remained unfinished.

          Artist details

          Paul Cezanne was born in Aix-en-Provence in 1839. Although he is credited with profoundly influencing twentieth century art recognition didnít come until his last years. His early works, influenced by Delacroix and Manet were often rejected by the art world. Later in life he was influenced by Pissarro. His palette began to brighten considerably and he observed nature more closely. Although he is linked with the Impressionist movement, he sought to make 'something solid and enduring like the art of museums'. Cezanne died in Aix in 1906.
