270 Original Paintings For Sale | Vanity
Buying artworks on the theme of "Vanity"
In the great tradition of the Memento mori, these ancient representations which remind us that every man must die one day, vanities appear at the very beginning of the 17th century. This name takes its root from the term "vain", which refers to what is empty, illusory. These are paintings classified in the category of still lifes, and contain a set of emblems and objects whose possession seems futile, derisory. Among the characteristic elements most often found in works of vanities: paintings of skulls, extinguished candles, hourglasses or clocks, musical instruments silenced, soap bubbles and faded flowers symbolizing both the fleetingness of life and earthly goods. Among the most emblematic works of vanity painting, let us mention "Vanity" by Philippe de Champaigne.
