Over the centuries artists have chosen the subject of still life for a variety of reasons: to reflect the status of their owner, be it humble of haughty; for their symbolic meaning which reveals a hidden story or idea; to capture the natural beauty of transient objects like a flower or fruit; to demonstrate the artist’s skilled painting technique or as a controlled structure to express the abstract qualities of the visual elements.

(English pronunciation: /kiˌɑːrəˈskjʊəroʊ/; Italian: [ˌkjaroˈskuːro];
Italian for light-dark) in art is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition.

It is also a technical term used by artists and art historians for the use of contrasts of light to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects and figures.[1] Similar effects in cinema and photography also are called chiaroscuro.
