I decided to create a series of posts titled "Movements & Themes". Each entry will feature works from a variety of artists that either were inspired by the same artistic movement and style or whose pieces feature similar themes and subject matter. Today's Movements & Themes post features still life paintings completed in a wide range of styles. I enjoy seeing how each artist uniquely imparts color, texture and shape to the same subject matter. Be sure to check out my previous post on mid-century nautical theme paintings here.
