Artists from the 17th century Dutch Golden Age are best known for their magnificent realistic paintings. Cynthia Kelly Overall is an enthusiastic fan of its still life sub-genre and, as a result, the gallery walls are covered in art depicting household objects, flowers and food in quiet arrangements. “The still life painters adhered to certain rules to please their patrons’ appetites,” she explained. “The artists’ success lay in their ability to accentuate the unique essence of each object.” That’s something Overall has mastered as well.
