Cezanne apples

Apart from a brief period in 17th century Northern Europe, still life was a neglected genre despite the efforts of Jean-Baptiste Chardin. It was Paul Cezanne who almost single handedly took it to heights that it became a popular subject for future artists including Picasso, Matisse, Morandi and Braque. This painting is a shining example of his artwork in which he used techniques like two viewpoints which were to change the direction of art. The painting is also noted for its unbalanced parts like the titled bottle, inclined basket and the fruits which are about to fall.
