Impressionists also experimented with paintings featuring pitchers. The founder of the Impressionist movement, Paul Cezanne featured this ceramic prominently in his painting, 'Still Life with Curtain and Pitcher'. Also, Paul Gauguin, role model and friend of Van Gogh, explored this element in his still life painting, 'Teiera, Brocca e Frutta, 1899'. Not surprisingly, this technique of depicting pitchers hasn't stopped in current times, as evidenced by the work of modern Impressionist artist Peter Graham in his pitcher print, 'Pitcher of Flowers'.
Among modern artists, the pitcher's iconic shape is ideal for flat-styled graphic prints. These whimsical paintings are typically brightly colored and usually depict flowers, as seen in 'Red Pitcher' by J. Parry. However, despite using a flat style to portray these subjects, retro pitcher paintings often deal with the same themes of domesticity and relaxation that are present in the more realistic examples of this art category.
