Claude Monet once owned this painting, a large and fine work that ranks with the best of Cézanne's still lifes. In 1925 Monet lent it to an exhibition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, where it was dated 1886, but it is now thought to have been painted in the early 1890s. The pattern of leaves against the background is unusual in Cézanne's oeuvre, as is the highly finished surface. Cézanne's work was prized by other artists: Degas also owned several pictures by him.
