French painter Paul Cezanne created some incredible still lifes -- and his Apples and Oranges are among the most spectacular ones he painted. This painting, "Apples and Oranges" was completed in 1899. It was done in oils on canvas. The famous Cezanne painting features a beautiful array of red and yellow apples and some bright fresh oranges arranged carefully on a table, with crisp white drapery underneath the fruit. Gorgeous!
Apples and Oranges was one in a series of six paintings Paul Cezanne completed in 1899 in his studio in Paris. All the paintings in the series include the same dishes and jug, sitting atop a draped white cloth. Cezanne's paintings transcended traditional 19th century impressionism to post-impressionism and cubism in the 20th century.
