"There is no death in nature! Everything lives and everything moves, everything inhales and exhales, everything changes every minute", - said the French art critic Thoré-Bürger, and one of the greatest masters of still-life once stated: "Who said one paints with colours? One employs colours, but one paints with feeling". And, indeed, still-life, which is all about depicting things that surround people in their everyday life, can touch us not less than any other genre.The favourite objects of representation have always been flowers, fruit and vegetables, seafood, pots and pans, which can actually become allegorical images translating complicated philosophical senses at times. A modern still-life painting can be a perfect thing to decorate your interior with and can, actually, be of any subject-matter: from a still-life with flowers and with fruit to metaphorical and historical still-lives. Quite often the pictures are made look so realistic that you may find it very difficult to tell life from an image. Oil on canvas still life for sale probably enjoys the highest popularity, while water-colours are charming in their own way, but both of the techniques will look good in the decoration of interiors, especially of dining rooms and kitchens. In ArtRussia Gallery you can always purchase Russian still life created by well-known modern Russian painters.
