Still life was a major preoccupation for Cézanne during the 1890s. He would take everyday household items—jugs, napkins, pieces of fruit—and arrange them in different combinations to study their forms and their relationships to each other. Here Cézanne captures the peaks and valleys of an ordinary napkin as if it is a rocky landscape spreading across the table. We seem to view the table from several perspectives at once, which brings a bit of tension, even motion, to these seemingly inanimate objects.
