Vanitas still lifes | History homework help

Go to one of the following online collections, and select an example of a Vanitas Still Life:

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • The National Gallery of Art
  • The Tate Museum
  • The Walters Art Museum
  • The Rijks Museum

Closely examine your Vanitas Still Life selection, and identify at least three objects within it.  Describe what these objects are, and why the artist included them in the painting. Be sure to include a discussion of moral and ethical considerations. 

Finally, attach a jpeg image of the painting, and be sure to include at the beginning of your discussion the title, the artist, the dimensions of the painting, and its date.
