Nature Morte:

Contemporary Artists Reinvigorate the Still Life

By Michael Petry, published by Thames & Hudson

Publication date: 14 October 2013


“Thought-provoking and richly visual, Nature Morte brings together, for the first time, the poignant, provocative re-imaginings of the traditional still life by over 180 international contemporary artists. This visually stunning and timely book reveals how leading artists of the 21st century are reinvigorating the still life, a genre previously synonymous with the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Old Masters.”
