Still Life With Apples Cross Stitch Pattern

$8.02 USD

Bright and Beautiful

Cross stitch your own fine art gallery with this stunning replica of Paul Cézanne’s 1893 Still Life With Apples.



Still Life With a Curtain cross stitch pattern is a beautiful project that captures the fine details of Paul Cézanne’s painting. We won’t kid you though, it’s not for the faint hearted.

The Project

This is a large, full coverage cross stitch that measures 45.4cm x 36.1cm when completed on 14 count Aida cloth (250 x 199 grid size). It’s a very challenging project because we have used a lot of confetti to recreate the depth and textures of the original painting. Plus you’ll need 223 different DMC colours (which is quite a lot).

That said, we think you ‘ll love stitching the bright emerald vase, shining red apples, and textured table drapes in DMC colours that are true to the artist’s original palette.

ATTENTION PATTERN KEEPER FANS: To make things easier, we’ve included an extra chart in your download pack that works perfectly with the Pattern Keeper App.

The Painting

This beautiful painting was acquired by the Getty Museum (Los Angeles) in 1996. Here are some of the notes from the museum website:

During the last thirty years of his life, Paul Cézanne painted the same objects–the green vase, the rum bottle, the ginger pot, and the apples–over and over again. His interest was not in the objects themselves but in using them to experiment with shape, color, and lighting. He arranged his still lifes so that everything locked together. Edges of objects run into each other; for example, a black arabesque seemingly escapes from the blue cloth to capture an apple in the center; the sinuous curves of the blue ginger pot’s rattan straps merge with other straps on the body of the bottle behind. Giving form and mass to objects through the juxtaposition of brushstrokes and carefully balanced colors and textures, he gave the painting a sense of comforting stability.

The Artist

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.
