Curtain, Jug and Fruitbowl | Painted by Paul Cezanne

Isn’t this painting just lovely? Some juicy fruits are shown, a cool jug, and a bowl full of delicious fruits. The author of this painting, Paul Cezanne, must have been a real fruit admirer. What we only find depressive about this painting is that gray background…yuck.

This painting itself was completed in 1894 and it was put up for an auction at Sotheby’s in New York on May 10, 1999. This painting is commonly known as “Curtain, Jug and Fruitbowl,” but its original name is “Rideau, Cruchon et Compotier.”

  1. You are far away of having traced down the most expansive painting in the world! To my knowledge, this happens to be a work of Paul Gauguin painted in 1892 and entitled “Nafea faa ipoipo” (which in tahitian means “When will you marry”). It was once owned by swiss collector Rudolf Staehelin, who bought it in 1917, and sold in 2015 by his grandson to the emir of Quatar for an alleged price of $300 million.
