Is "Nature Morte" dead ?


Everyday objects have always been a source of inspiration for artists. From the Flemish painters of the Renaissance to Morandi in the 20th century still life painters have found the essential beauty in ordinary objects. With modern art the most common objects have become a kind of obsession. These are no longer the essence of beauty but rather the ugly evidence of the consumer society.

But you know as nobody has ever been able to give a commonly accepted definition of art, there is room for anyone who sees himself as an artist. And fortunately for some people (like me) there still exist artists in the tradition of Chardin or Morandi.
