'Early Spanish Still Lifes by artists such as Sanchez Cotán will be shown in order to discuss the many ways Still Life painting can give insights into the world and society in which the artist lived. This will be explored in the lecture as well as the development on this genre during the later centuries including the work of Goya. Particular attention will be paid to objects which can go unnoticed such as a fly on a grape or a fish bone strewn across the table.'
