Cézanne began this monumental study with a light and free sketch in black chalk and then used transparent strokes of watercolor in rich hues to define the contours. The broken lines and shimmering planes of color lend the sheet a surface dynamism that is enriched by the bold use of the reserve of paper. Reflecting the artist's mastery of watercolor, this still life was executed sometime during the last few years of his life.
