Event Description

Still life emerged as a genre of painting in the early 17th century in Europe. Including all kinds of man-made or natural objects, cut flowers, fruit, vegetables, fish, game, etc., still life paintings were highly symbolic and reflect the values of the society and artist that creates it. This exhibition showcases many of the still life works in the CRMA collection in a broad array of media.
