Still life painting celebrates the abundance, beauty, and diversity of the natural world. Often intimate and engaging, depictions of flowers, fruit, and tabletop objects reveal the artist’s skill in rendering varying textures, in capturing the brilliance of nature’s colors, and in developing harmonious, yet complex, compositions. This exhibition, featuring works from the Museum’s Permanent Collection, traces the development of still life painting from late 19th-century naturalism through the formalist concerns of early-20th century modernism to the verisimilitude of photorealism in the 1970s. Work by Carducius Plantagenet Ream, William Merritt Chase, Ilya Bolotowsky, Jan Matulka, Helen Torr, Joseph Stella, David Burliuk, Nicolai Cikovsky, Milton Avery, and Robert Kipniss, among others, is included.
