trompe l'oeil still life of books and a bronze bust














an illusionistic painting of bronze sculpture

All the items in the painting are semantically linked and build up a pictorial narrative meaningful for the owner. The bronze depicted was originally sculpted by Clesinger and represents Helen of Troy. One of the books is by Maeterlink the other is by I. A. Richards. The dead flowers heads are a memento mori and constitute a reminder of the fleeting nature of life. Trompe loeil art is undertaken by commission.
