Still Life with Water Jug
Paul Cézanne

This unfinished work belongs to a series of still lifes made by Cézanne in the late 1880s and early 1890s, in which he depicted plates and fruit on a table placed parallel with the picture plane.

The tall blue water jug appears in all these paintings. It was a favourite object of Cézanne's.
