Paul Cézanne. Fruit and Jug on a Table


Paul Cézanne. Bathers. 1898‒1900. The Baltimore Museum of Art: The Cone Collection, formed by Dr. Claribel Cone and Miss Etta Cone of Baltimore, Maryland, BMA 1950.195

Cézanne produced more than 200 works using the motif of bathers in a landscape. These works demonstrate a harmonious vision in which all of the separate elements—bodies, trees, water, earth—are of equal importance. This painting was included in the Salon d’Automne of 1904, and it may have been there that Leo and Gertrude Stein decided to acquire it. Gertrude Stein sold the work to Baltimore collector Etta Cone in 1926, but during the intervening years it was seen by countless artists who visited the Stein apartment.
