Paul Cezanne, Still-Life with Apples, Bottle, Glass, and Chair

I chose to analyze Paul Cezanne's Still-Life with Apples, Bottle, Glass, and Chair, completed between 1904 and 1906.  The picture is graphite and water color on paper.  It portrays these" imaginary lines' or lines that should form an outline, but do not join up.  Cezanne successfully displays implied lines and makes the brains of those who look at the picture join the lines and fill in the gaps.  It chose this picture for that very reason.  It amazed me how a painter could create something that makes the interpreter "fill in the gaps" and join the lines.  Cezanne uses soft edges to help connect the objects in the picture.  Value is another element used in the picture.  Darker colors are used to show shadows on the table.
