In this classic Reaktion title, Norman Bryson analyses the origins, history and logic of still-life, one of the most enduring forms of Western painting.

From Roman wall-painting to Cubism, and from seventeenth-century Dutch still-life to Bryson's conclusion that the persisting tendency to downgrade the genre of still-life is profoundly rooted in the historical oppression of women, Looking at the Overlooked is Norman Bryson at his brilliant best.
