In France, after the Second World War, Picasso created Still Life works at a time when he was preoccupied by death and mortality. The tradition of Vanitas and Momento Mori, with it's roots in Dutch and Spanish art, are meditations of grief and loss, fused with political resistance. Life isn't so still! Skulls, clocks, candles, rotting fruit with insects, and flowers all symbolize the temporal nature of life.
