Calling all TAC Members

A still life is a painting featuring an arrangement of inanimate, everyday objects, whether natural objects (flowers, food, wine, etc.) or manufactured items (books, bottles, crockery, etc.). The Tate Museum Glossary puts it very succinctly, defining the subject of a a still life as "anything that does not move or is dead".
Still lifes are most often represented in the mediums of oil painting, watercolor, drawing, photography and mosaics. Other mediums, such as sculpture, use materials such as clay, bronze and marble for still lifes.
