Historical Context:
Dating back to ancient times, the still life image has been popular across artistic movements, cultures and periods. For many artists, still life images are used to practice their skills of composition, realism, perspective and color use. Historically, they were painted in artist studios with a random assortment of plates, bowls, flowers, fruit and ribbons strewn about a table. While the concept and composition of still lives hasn’t changed over the years, the content and objects portrayed are significant in representing the artist and their surroundings.
