Students Inspired by Still Life
An idea for a collaboration (like our previous Cars and Cameras collaboration) between MCG and the Frick began to form. In honor of World Photography Day on August 19, students were instructed to examine Jan van Os's painting Still Life with Fruit and produce their own photographic interpretations. These could be literal or figurative, inspired purely by the visuals of the painting, or incorporate additional research into the work, artist, and still life genre.
Jan Van Os (Dutch, 1744–1808).
