It's still life

Agostinho José da Mota pioneered outdoor painting from life in Brazil, much like the Impressionists did in Europe. He also excelled at these more domestic still lifes, though here you can also see clouds and sky in the distance.

Fantastic fruits!

This tasty platter includes a spiky jackfruit, juicy-looking pomegranate seeds, and some avocados. Tuck in!

Memento mori?

In Brazilian Portuguese, 'still life' paintings are referred to as 'natureza-morta', or 'dead nature', because life has been frozen dead in paint. Are the quickly-rotting fruits also a reminder of our mortality?

All Attersee

Klimt is well-known for his golden paintings, but here he paints the surface of Lake Attersee, where he lived at the time.

Klimt or Monet?

The unusual turquoise color is reminiscent of paintings by the French Impressionist Claude Monet.

A deeper blue

As the water stretches into the distance and we see less of the ripples on the surface, the blue becomes deeper, and Klimt's brushstrokes become longer and more sweeping.
