THE FATHERS OF MODERN ART
Panayiotis Kalorkoti says about this work:
"In Cezanne it is the familiar elements of the still-lives which have been translated back into the 'real' world of the print, to the extent that the artist interrupts his painting to eat one of the apples. Pissarro and Cezanne's wife make no attempt to divert his attention as he engages the viewer's gaze more directly than any other figure in the series. The magnitude of his reputation is hinted at not so much by a glimpse of the Bathers as by the presence of Maurice Denis's Homage to Cezanne of 1900, homage here finding expression at a respectful distance while my own move in close to find identity in the informal moment of trivial detail."
