Paul Cezanne, Apples Peaches, Pears and Grapes (1899)

I’m a big fan of Cezanne.  I love the way he plays with the depth of field — especially in his still lifes he’s intentionally riding a line between two- and three-dimensionality.  He acknowledges the third dimension but forces you to see the simple shapes on the flat plane of the painting surface.  And his use of color is stunning.  Cezanne influenced many  painters, among them another of my favorites, the Canadian Tom Thomson.  Certainly one of my favorite painters of all time!
