A c. 1867-9 painting in oils, Still Life with Green Pot and Pewter Jug, by Paul Cézanne (1839-1906), the French post-impressionist artist. This is an excellent example of Cézanne's approach to still life in the first part of his career where he strives to achieve a sense of calm in the painting but still contrasting bright colours with a darker background. (Musée d'Orsay, Paris)
