This book reveals how leading artists of the 21st century are reinvigorating the still life, a genre previously synonymous with the sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Old Masters. Michael Petrys careful curation of this exciting revamp celebrates works by emerging and established artists alike, from all over the globe, including John Currin, Elmgreen & Dragset, Renata Hegyi, Damien Hirst, David Hockney, Jeff Koons, Beatriz Milhazes, Gabriel Orozco, Elizabeth Peyton, Marc Quinn, Sam Taylor- Wood and Ai Weiwei. Short but compelling introductions begin each chapter and are followed by dramatic, visually led spreads that pair each work with a perceptive reading of its significance to the still-life tradition.
