    To attract and keep the attention of the audience in a genre as stale and traditional as still life painting can be a difficult task, but many painters have risen to the challenge in the hundreds of years since its invention. These methods are numerous and involve the exploration of tensions such as those that exist between abstraction and representation, or moralizing versus hedonistic. Considered one of the lowest types of art by the French Academy, Still Life with a Bottle of Rum, Shoes, and Still Life with a Skull and a Writing Quill are three still paintings that have managed to rise above the typical wave that have been produced by artists of varying skills for centuries. Though looking at each alone does not truly illuminate the reasoning behind each aforementioned painting’s significance, comparison reveals the direct relationship between stylization and communication that these paintings probe so thoroughly—they are what drives a piece of art into being valuable, in terms of becoming significant enough for preservation. Pablo Picasso’s Still Life with a Bottle of Rum is a typical modernist painting as it depicts modern life and its vices, with his eponymous rum, as well as other items theorized to be a drinking glass and a pipe. His goal with the painting was likely not to celebrate or condemn the objects at hand, but simply to play with form, and create art for the sake of art.

    The role of depth in inciting the other senses has been discussed, but what if there was no depth and the entire composition was as flat as it could be. Flatness relieves a painting of the sculptural effect, but does it only present a space inhabitable to man? As far as this assessment is accurate, Greenberg fails to factor in what type of space is represented in flatness. Henri Matisse’s The Red Studio is a very flat painting, with everything in two dimensions. This painting agrees with in the…

    driving the artist’s subjective emotional state. Rather than using idealized forms or classical codes, Fauvists believed that color had a spiritual quality that linked directly to the viewer’s emotional experience. This radical idea revealed that color could be used symbolically, breaking its previously established role as a descriptive element (MacTaggart, 2007). When asked to define Fauvism, Maurice de Vlaminck replied, “What is Fauvism? It is me; it was my style... my way of combined revolt…
