Still Life Artworks
Still Life Artworks contd.
Still Life Artists
What about still life...?
Basically.....
A work of depicting inanimate, typically commonplace objects that can fit on a table top that are either natural but domesticated objects or man made objects.
Examples may include....
Domesticated Natural:
fruits
flowers
any potted plant
Man-made:
glasses
books
vases
board games
Why the HECK should we be drawing random junk...?
BECAUSE IT AINT JUNK!!!!!!
EVERY ARTIST HAS A PURPOSE FOR THEIR WORK
Still life art dates all the way back when the Egyptians used it to adorn the interior of ancient tombs.
they believed that whatever they drew would become real for the deceased in their afterlife.
and when Egyptians used the art of still life, it was usually, if not always, ment to honor their dead.
By the Middle ages and Renaissance periods (1300), still life arts made their destiction as so with the Europeans...
most of the time, Northern Europeans for example, made use of still life art to relay their Christian moral values.
they developed the common use of
oil painting
because of artists such as
Jan van Eyck.
However
the depiction of religious meaning began to be overlooked by artists such as
Leonardo da Vinci
and
Albrecht Durer.
During the Sixteenth Century, however, is when most of the "
Artistic Explosions
" happened due to the inspiration of Still life art.
Natural objects began to be appreciated as individual objects of study (science is now a huge part of art), appart from religious or mythological associations.
Artists began to seem like
Artistic Authors
whom used still life to symbolicly tell stories in a way that they were best at- art.
By the second half of the 16th century, the autonomous still life evolved!
gradually, religious content diminished in size and placement in the "still life art world".
Moral lessons however remained and continued as sub-contexts.
An example would be in 1568 with the artwork of "The Butcher Shop" by
Joachim Beuckelaer
MOST IMPORTANT FACTORS OF STILL LIFE ART ASIDE FROM THE BASICS THAT DEFINE THESE FACTORS:
positioning,
form,
color,
texture,
and composition.
Egyptian Still Life Paintings
painted as tribute to the gods
can be seen on the walls of tombs and temples
did not care about the realistic aspects of the subject matter
Greek/ Roman Still Life Paintings
more detailed and real than Egyptian Still Life paintings
more accurate shading and coloring
Still Life Artworks contd.
Venitas Still Life Paintings
Refers to Bible passage: "vanity is vanity"
subject matter is always inclusive of fancy, expensive objects and skulls-- representative of death
19th Century Still Life Paintings
Artists no longer concerned with photo-realistic paintings
experimented with colors, shapes and the ways paint could be applied on canvas
The Cubists
Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso invented "Cubisim"- a style of painting
painting from different perspectives
did not focus realism
But....
born in Spain in 1561, died in 1627, influenced by the spirit of Catholic mysticism
considered one of the pioneers of Baroque realism in Spain
born in Colorado, was associated with the Pop Art movement in the 60s, rejected abstract expressionism
"Standing Still Life" series of still object paintings
