“Did you know that in the thousand years or so between antiquity and the Renaissance there was no still life painting in the West? Can you imagine? Such a natural thing, you’d think. A thousand years. No pictures of nonsubservient things all by themselves. Through all that time such things are lost to us as self-sufficient facts.”
—David Searcy, from “Still Life Painting.”
