'Harmony running parallel to nature'. That's how Paul Cezanne described his painting with its deliberately disjointed perspective, the tilted bottle, the incline of the basket, and the table with no right angles, creating an impossible shape.
He then used heavy brushstrokes to create a greater density than would be seen in real life, so still life but not as we know it.
However, it, and he, was highly influential being called the Father of Modern Art, and the seminal inspiration for Picasso and Matisse among many others.
Yet what really appeals to us is that it is a wonderfully warm and welcoming image, and, even more, it makes for a fabulous scarf in flowing silk.
It is exclusive to this website, and has never been offered elsewhere, although it belongs to the Helen Birch Bartlett Memorial Collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. The frame is a Weston Agate.
The price reflects prestige of the image and scarf, and also the huge amount of research, rights negotiations, image testing on silk, and the licensing fees paid for some of the images. Still, £100 off the Liberty price is quite a saving.
