Still Life With a Curtain cross stitch pattern was inspired by one of Paul Cézanne’s beautiful oil paintings. Completed in 1895, the painting has been with the The Hermitage Museum in Russia since 1930. We think you’ll enjoy stitching the brightly coloured peaches and floral pitcher alongside the muted blues and greens in the patterned curtain, table dressing, and background wall.
This is a large, full coverage cross stitch that measures 50.8cm x 37.2cm when completed on 14 count Aida cloth (280 x 205 grid size). It’s a challenging project for experienced stitchers but the finished piece closely resembles the original artwork. To make things easier, we’ve included an extra chart in your download pack that works perfectly with the Pattern Keeper App.
Paul Cézanne was a French painter who lived between 1839-1906. He painted in the post-impressionist style and is often referred to as the father of Cubism and even Modern Art itself.
We are big fans of Cézanne especially his still life paintings and the Card Players series –look for these (and many more) in our growing section dedicated to this extraordinary artist.
