Masterpieces brought to life . . .
This richly detailed film journeys through the epic history of still life painting, featuring a range of delights from the earliest existing mural paintings discovered at Pompeii to the cubist masterpieces of Picasso.
Awash with rich imagery of fruit and flowers as well as humble domestic objects, this lively take on the story of still life encompasses the work of some of the genre’s greatest artists, from Caravaggio to Cezanne.
Still Life is also brought up to date by contemporary artists. Israeli born Ori Gersht’s super slow motion films presents the medium in a way it has never been seen before.
With contributions from historians and art experts, this colourful program opens up the huge social histories that lie behind the paintings and the fascinating lives of the people who made them.
