Still Life Before Still Life
Covering a decadent collection of still life artwork, this book unearths the real history of still life painting – the roots of which, argues scholar and author David Ekserdjian, date back significantly earlier than the 17th-century.
In an illuminating study, the author looks back to the origins of still life in classical antiquity, followed by its re-emergence in Renaissance paintings. The works featured come from the likes of Da Vinci, Raphael, Ortolano and Holbein.
Delight in the rich, decadent imagery presented throughout this volume, which features a mixture of famous and lesser-known artworks reproduced in full. Individual elements within different works are placed under scrutiny, as Ekserdjian presents you with a new way to consider still life.
