In the late 1920s Hartley painted in southern France where Post-Impressionist Paul Cézanne had lived.
Melons reflects Cézanne's methods and approach in the parallel brushstrokes and the mountainous forms of the cloth.
Owned by Mr. James Imbrie of Lawrenceville, N.J. and brought to the museum for purchase consideration. The painting was originally owned by Judge Carden, a patron of the artist.
