Stillleben / Still Life

Carl Schuch and Contemporary Still Life Photography

Still life has fascinated both viewers and artists for centuries. Carl Schuch (1846–1903), one of the most important Austrian Realist painters, was a master of this genre.
This catalogue now presents a selection of Schuch’s flower and food motifs in dialogue with contemporary still life photography, which re-conceptualises this traditional subject in painting and updates it both artistically and in terms of the media used.
These works represent a search for authenticity and truth in the portrayal of inanimate things and the everyday, in a profane, private and intimate aesthetic.
