One Each: Still Lifes by Cézanne, Pissarro and Friends

The exhibition features paintings by five young French artists who, in the 1860s, used the still life genre to experiment with new techniques and pictorial aims in painting.

The exhibition features paintings by five young French artists who, in the 1860s, used the still life genre to experiment with new techniques and pictorial aims in painting. In these years, Paul Cézanne, Camille Pissarro, Édouard Manet, Frédéric Bazille, and Claude Monet were modernizing painting, creating a style—Impressionism—that would polarize the art world and have a profound impact on art to come. These five paintings combine familiar subjects from the kitchen counter and dinner table—a glass of wine, freshly-caught fish, a loaf of bread, lemons—with revolutionary artistic intent. The artists’ methods of making are put boldly on view—broad and emphatic brushwork, paint sculpted on the canvas. The Impressionists termed this audacious rebalancing of priorities and values in an artwork “sincerity.”
