About the Work

Scattered fruits, crockery and a glass carafe have been carefully arranged on a white tablecloth to form a still life. Schuch has painted the apples with coarse brushstrokes, capturing the tablecloth even more sketchily. In the centre of the picture the light flesh of a cut-open apple gleams against the white of the fabric. Schuch created this still life in Paris as part of the 'Apples on White' group of works. The artist staged the still life against a neutral background in order to emphasise the brilliant colours of the fruits. Thus the meaning of the objects recedes behind the quality of their colours.
