Still Life with Skull

Paul Cezanne
Still Life with Skull

I choose this painting because I like Cezanne's style. I think the contrast between the warm colors in the front and the dark background make an interesting composition. I also like the white sheet in the corner, it draws the eye in and looks very realistic. I like the brushstrokes that Cezanne uses and the different shades of dark in the background.  I also really enjoy that he uses a skull among the fruit. I think it juxtaposes the ideas of life with the fruit and death with the skull.
