    Images and media

    In this still life, Paul Cézanne has abandoned the classic central perspective. Although the room is perceived as chaotic due to the strongly sloping table, the strict geometry of the composition contributes to the stability of the image. Typical for Cézanne are the vibrating lines defining the shapes. The dominant cold blue colour is contrasted by the warm colours of the fruits.
