Many would claim that the still life reached it’s peak with the 17th century Dutch painters. It’s hard to argue with them; Dutch still lifes are exquisite.

Whether you’re a cubist or expressionist, minimalist or modern day conceptual artist, it seems that artists can’t help but take inspiration from the little things resting on their tables.
