Jules Cavaillès (1901-1977)


La corbeille de fruits


Oil on canvas

62 x 62 cm


This vibrant oil painting with a pine cone, pineapple, and lemons on a pink table was painted by Jules Cavaillès in the 1950s. The pink table provides an interesting contrast to the colors of the fruits, adding a touch of warmth and whimsy to the composition. Cavailles' approach to composition might involve arranging the fruits in an engaging manner, creating a dynamic interplay between shapes, colors, and negative space. Cavailles' style was influenced by Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, and even elements of Cubism. He was known for his bold use of color and his ability to infuse his works with a sense of energy and vitality. In his still-life paintings, he often played with colors, textures, and patterns to create visually striking compositions. This still-life painting featuring fruit, such as pineapple and lemons, Jules Cavailles has utilized his characteristic bold palette to bring out the vibrancy of the fruits. Lemons, pineapples, and other fruits are depicted with a combination of realistic details and expressive brushstrokes, capturing both their physical appearance and their sensory qualities.
