50 Extraordinary Still Life Paintings and Drawings

Still life drawings and paintings have a long history, back in time. Maybe because they seem to be easier to paint than a portrait or something in movement even.

But still life is also nothing else but a portrait of usually a life-less scene. Most artists have a muse or a model, a few entities put together that they reproduce. Others, the more advanced ones, use only their imagination.

The following showcase proves that still life in traditional art is not as easy as it seems, if a certain result is desired and details are to be emphasized, along with shadows and light. 50 images, paintings and drawings, none enhanced by digital software, just plain and pure talent. For the sake of good old times of art.
