Catalogue Note

Autour de la table may be counted among the very rare, finished studies the artist completed early in the 1870s, typically in prepartion for larger oil paintings. Executed during his stay in Auvers-sur-Oise with Paul Gachet, the offered work is particularly extraordinary for Cézanne's selection of medium—he is known to have created only three pastels during his entire career.
