  • Still Life with a Ginger Jar and Eggplants, 1893–94
    Paul Cézanne (French, 1839–1906)
    Oil on canvas; 28 1/2 x 36 in. (72.4 x 91.4 cm)
    Bequest of Stephen C. Clark, 1960 (61.101.4)

    For this commanding still life, with its richly orchestrated play of overlapping shapes, patterns, colors, and textures, Cézanne relied on a stock of familiar objects. The raffia-corded ginger jar, for example, is featured in more than a dozen compositions, including three of comparable verve dating to the early 1890s.
