What is a still life?
The term “still life” describes a work of art that shows inanimate objects, such as fruit, flowers, and/or baskets or bowls, etc. 
-> still lifes depict things that are “still” and don’t move. Placed in a certain way that creates a composition. 

Still life is a genre that spans art history. From ancient Egyptian tombs to modern art. The genre became particularly popular in the Netherlands during the 17th century.
