Willem Kalf, Still Life with an Aquamanile Fruit and a Nautilus Cup, ca. 1660.

The term "still life" (Spanish: "bodegón", also "naturaleza muerta"; French: "Nature morte") is used to describe an inanimate painting of subjects like: flowers (bouquet), vases, jars, fruits, bottles, shells, dead animals, glasses, jewelery, objets d'art, jewelry boxes, opera glasses, gloves, books, familiar objects, knifes, etc. While still life painting can be traced back to the ancient Egyptians, it was only with the Dutch painters of the 17th century (Dutch Golden Age) that it came into its own as a painting genre. [1] Still life is the genre that the Post-Impressionist master Paul Cezanne established as equal in stature to landscape or portraiture. [2]

Raphaelle Peale (1774-1825), son of Charles Willson Peale, was America's first professional still-life painter. [3] Early American still-life painters also included John Johnston (ca. 1753-1818), Charles Bird King (1785–1862), and John F. Francis (1808–1886).
