Still Life was the French Academy’s fifth genre, seemingly the least appreciated, because they did not involve human subject matter. The term derives from the Dutch word stilleven, meaning motionless or silent life.

Still life includes all kinds of man-made or natural objects, cut flowers, fruit, vegetables, fish, game, wine and so on. Still life may be a celebration of material pleasures such as food and wine, or a warning of the ephemeral nature of these pleasures, given the brevity of human life.

In moden art simple still life arrangements have often been used as a relatively neutral basis for formal experiment, for example by Paul Cézanne and the Cubists. (Source: tate.org.uk)
