Paul Cezanne The Apples
Cezanne was born in the South of France and studied in Paris. France is on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.
Cezanne liked to paint still lifes. Here are two examples.
A still life is a painting of fruit, flowers, food or objects that are NON LIVING. Cezanne painted close to 200 of these.
Cezanne also painted more than 20 self portraits. He said he wanted the models to stay as still as an apple! Maybe this is why most people weren’t willing to “sit” for him in a painting!
Portraits of Paul and Madame Cezanne
Cezanne concentrated on an object’s basic shape and its color. He liked to paint apples a lot because they didn’t move and he could observe them for as long as he liked.
Cezanne painted dozens and dozens of apples! He studied apples and once said, “I want to astonish Paris with an apple!”
Look at the apples in this picture. They look real because they have “depth.” They are three dimensional or 3-D and you don’t need glasses to see it, do you?
PERSEPECTIVE is a technique that makes us believe an object on a flat surface has DEPTH.
DEPTH—A cube has depth. A square does not have depth— it looks flat. A cube has depth---it doesn’t look flat.
Circle and sphere—one is flat and one has dimension or depth. A circle is flat…. A sphere is like a 3-D circle!
A triangle is another flat shape. What is the 3-D shape of a triangle?
It’s a CONE!!!!!
Apples and oranges are spheres. They have depth. They are not flat.
This is a painting by Paul Cezanne. It is of apples and oranges. What shape are apples and oranges?
Dish of Apples Paul Cezanne also knew that there were different colors in apples and oranges too. Look at all the different colors in these apples. What colors do you see? Doesn’t it look like you can take one of these apples and eat them?
Let’s Try to Draw a Cube
Making squares look like a cube! Now the squares look like they have depth!
Look what happens when we do this with different colors!
And now look at what we put INSIDE!
Now let’s try to draw a cylinder!
Can we make an apple look real? Remember two very important things: 3-D (depth) And Color—shading Remember an apple is NOT flat—it is not a circle it is a sphere.
