Dutch, Flemish and German Still Life

1998-07-10 | Markets & trends

The period ranging between the beginning of the Seventeenth and the end of the Eighteenth centuries can be considered the "golden era" for paintings featuring everyday objects, vases, flowers, fruit - in other words, still life. This term was born around the end of the seventeenth century to give a name to a new means of figurative expression which was mainly developed in the Netherlands, where artists were commissioned to paint tableware and splendid vases by the nobility. Here we look into some of the most beautiful pieces by Dutch, Flemish and German artists of that period. It is notable how glass has a special place in many paintings, and how often the mastery of the painters could be judged by the way they managed to catch the lightness, transparency and fragility of the glass objects.
