that to learn they painted small things of the daily life, like foods, fruits. .. it says: -José Parramón- in its book ' bodegón to the oil'.
Dead nature or Bodegón, pictorial representation of inanimate objects, like fruits, flowers, hunts, musical utensils, books or instruments, grouped generally on a flat surface.
The subject of the died nature, simple and without pretensions, usually does not have importance by itself; means represent més well so that the painter practices the composition and the representation of details and textures.
Own elements of bodegones are visible in the Roman Art of the antiquity, in mosaics and paintings murals probably based on Greek models, and in some cases they are let glimpse in the gothic art. With a different affluent will, the aspects of the natural world in the Chinese art and japonés imagine of sensible form. Nevertheless, bodegón as determined form of affluent art, is fundamentally a western phenomenon subsequent to the Renaissance. A painting exists on table (1504, Alte Pinakothek, Munich), of veneciano painter Jacopo de Barbari, who represents a dead perdiz and a pair of guanteletes, that usually is considered like first bodegón true. The later development of the género took place in the Netherlands fundamentally where artists like Jan Brueghel, Pieter Claesz, Willem Kalf and Frans Snyders painted pictures of floreros and tables with fruits and hunts, represented with exuberantes textures and great wealth of details. In Spain, it emphasized of very special way the austere sobriety of bodegones of Juan Sénchez Cotén, in whom a series of pieces, generally of fruit, is distributed in geométricas compositions on a shelf with an almost mystical simplicity.
In other countries, the dead nature was considered as the less important form of the art, until, in century XVIII, the painter francés Jean-Baptiste Simeon Chardin demonstrated his expresivas possibilities with his works of calmed harmony. The importance of bodegón grew throughout the following century until reaching the place that deserves with the work of the painter francés Paul Cézanne, whose numerous pictures of apples and oranges constitute masterpieces of formal composition. Bodegón became one of excellent the artistic forms més of principles of century XX to the being used by artists like the Spaniards Pablo Picasso and Gray Juan and the French Henri Matisse and the Georges Braque, among others, like an average one for its experiments of cubism, fauvismo and expresionismo.
