A magnificent late still life painting by Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) entitled Bouilloire et Fruits (Pitcher and Fruit)  was lent from a private collection and remained on view in the North Hall for approximately one year. Painted around 1888–90, it hung with other Impressionist and post-Impressionist works in The Frick Collection including Claude Monet's Vétheuil in Winter and Edgar Degas's recently cleaned Rehearsal, both dating from 1878–79. The Cézanne loan coincided with the 100th anniversary of the artist's death on October 22, 1906.
