Still-Life Paintings

All great artists begin their careers with learning how to paint the “still life”, a painting of an inanimate object whose shading and detail must be captured after hours of laborious practice. Even after conquering this challenge, many accomplished artists continue to paint still-life because they offer the artist much more creative leeway than a landscape or portrait can. overstockArt has a large collection of still-life paintings that are much more than just practice sketches by unknown artists, but rather unique takes on inanimate objects done by already-masterful painters. Browse these still-life oil painting reproductions of the classic floral arrangements, fruit bowls and kitchen items seen from the point of views of art history’s most creative, thoughtful minds.

Still-life paintings began as far back as the time of the ancient Egyptian tombs and ancient Greek mosaics. By the 16th century, paintings of food and flowers represented the importance of the five senses, while objects such as the skull would be placed into the paintings as well to symbolize inevitable death of all humans. Oil paintings of flowers done in a realist style became somewhat of a craze, and many of these most famous works were created. By the 18th century, religious and allegorical connections that had long been popular in still-life painting were dropped in favor of still-life themes as we know them today: breakfast tables, flower arrangements and the occasional skull, book or vase. As the 1800s ended and the 1900s began, the Impressionists began to take over the still-life genre, continuing the paint flowers and fruits in a somewhat realistic manner, but using colors that were highly unrealistic and surprising.

overstockArt’s selection of reproductions of the most famous still-life paintings includes a sample of works from these later years in still-life painting. Paul Cezanne’s elaborate table sets with draped fabrics, fruits and glassware done in his signature Post-Impressionist style feature bold, visible brush strokes combined with realistic color schemes. Cezanne also created still-life oil paintings with skulls to symbolize the impermanence of human life. overstockArt’s reproductions of these famous still-life works by artists like Cezanne, Renoir and Van Gogh are all hand painted on artist-grade canvas, with each original detail recreated to give you the most authentic still-life oil painting at a competitive value.

I ordered Monet's Artist's Garden at Giverny framed. The frame was excellent quality and the painting was as beautiful as the original, although I would have preferred that the paint be applied with a heavier hand. Shipping was prompt and packaging was bomb-proof. Thanks for a stunning piece for my home!
