In his Still Life with Fruit, in spite of the classical approach to composition in terms of the structure of the picture and the warm dark colours with the harmonious tonicities which he employs, Pantazis is interested par excellence in the materiality of the colour, which he expresses by the sharp contrast between the bright red and the yellow in the fleshy fruit. We encounter the influence of Courbet on the work of Pantazis not only in the technical elaboration of the paint with the spatula and the predominance of dark warm tones, but frequently also in the 'pagination' of the works with strong nearer planes, as is the case in Still Life with Objects.
