Programme 3: Still Life
Some artists, such as William Nicholson, carried on with a traditional and almost ‘photographic’ approach to still life painting into the 20th century. However, by the end of the 19th century Cézanne had already ceased to be concerned either with the idea of ‘finish’, or with maintaining a consistent viewpoint in his work. Taking Cézanne’s ideas even further Picasso also introduced the idea that rather than painting things, you could include the things themselves within a collage or assemblage.
