“I will astonish Paris with an Apple!” —Paul Cézanne

​Paul Cézanne (1829–1906) painted hundreds of apples.  How do you astonish the sophisticated critics in the art capital of the nineteenth century with an apple?  You might try painting an apple that looked more exactly like an apple than any ever before painted.  Or, you might show people a new way of seeing an apple.
