This richly detailed film journeys through the epic history of still life painting, from the earliest existing mural paintings discovered at Pompeii to Cubist masterpieces by Picasso. Awash with imagery of fruits and flowers as well as humble domestic objects, this lively take on the story of still life painting encompasses the work of some of the genre's greatest artists, from Caravaggio to Cezanne. The film is brought up to date with the work of artists such as Israeli-born Ori Gersht whose super slow motion film presents the still life in a way it's never been seen before. A BBC production.
