Still life painting

A still life painting is a work of art with an artistic composition, in which motionless objects such as fruit, flowers or some utensils are highlighted.

Still lifes were already made in Roman times, the silent witnesses are the numerous, beautifully preserved frescoes from Herculaneum and Pompeii.
