A beloved child picks a handful of blossoms from the garden for her momma, and the bouquet is proudly displayed in a crystal pitcher. A still-life portrait featuring the blossoms from a butterfly bush, a crystal pitcher, a colorful tin, and a silver candlestick with a white candle.
A still life is a work of art depicting mostly inanimate subject matter, typically commonplace objects which may be either natural (food, flowers, plants, rocks, or shells) or man-made (drinking glasses, books, vases, jewelry, coins, pipes, and so on). With origins in the Middle Ages and Ancient Greek and Roman art, still life paintings give the artist more leeway in the arrangement of design elements within a composition than do paintings of other types of subjects such as landscape or portraiture. Still life paintings, particularly before 1700, often contained religious and allegorical symbolism relating to the objects depicted. Some modern still life breaks the two-dimensional barrier and employs three-dimensional mixed media, and uses found objects, photography, computer graphics, as well as video and sound.
Just like the painter, a photographer arranges objects into a composition and then takes a photograph of the arrangement; this allows the photographer to control the narrative of their picture.
