Paul Cezanne – Still Life

Paul Cézanne

French Post-Impressionist Painter, 1839-1906

"Cézanne made a living thing out of a teacup, or rather in a teacup he realized the existence of something alive. He raised still life to such a point that it ceased to be inanimate. He painted these things as he painted human beings, because he was endowed with the gift of divining the inner life in everything. His color and line are alike suitable to the spiritual harmony. A man, a tree, an apple — all were used by Cézanne in the creation of something that is called a "picture," and which is a piece of true inward and artistic harmony."
Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) Russian painter
