THE NEW STILL LIFE

"Still Life" art seems to always be a very interesting subject for artists independently of century, art group, country, etc... I would like to understand why, is it only for observation? or is something more? Maybe they all felt hypnotized by it... 

Arcimboldo

 Salvador Dalì

 Juan Sánchez Cotán

 Phillippe de Champaigne

Still Life = Natura Morta = "Dead Nature" (different isn't it?)

But what I noticed is that people are still interested in picturing Still Life, but trying to improve the way it is portrayed, now with photography people are trying to rearrange Still Life in an almost rational, pragmatical way, separating every thing in the frame.

Great ideas, great works, but I must say that I have a Still Life Favorite...
