Still Life with Creatures

Animals have found their way into still life paintings from the very beginning of the genre. As an animal lover, I'm not overly enthused about the hunting aspect of many of these pieces, but I set those feelings aside to appreciate the art itself. Fortunately, many artists also take a more humane turn in their work. Photographic still life falls outside the scope of this board. It includes paintings only.
