The World Is an Apple:
The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne
Premiere exhibition at the Barnes Foundation
June 22-September 22, 2014
Experience the works of post-impressionist Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) this summer at the Barnes Foundation. The World Is an Apple: The Still Lifes of Paul Cézanne features 21 paintings by the master artist ranging from his early paintings to his late works.
Often playing with colors, forms and perspective, Cézanne established a distinctive style to his still lifes with themes ranging from apples and flowers to skulls. The curated exhibition charts a thematic and chronological sweep of Cézanne’s still-life painting, showing how the “Master of Aix” recast the genre and set it on a new course. The select gathering of paintings offers a brief reappraisal of Cézanne’s monumental achievement in the genre.
The exhibition features 16 still lifes from the Barnes Foundation’s permanent collection in addition to pieces on loan from public and private collections including the National Gallery, Musée d’Orsay and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
