Some words about the tradition of Vanitas-Paintings or "Memento mori" :

Vanitas themes were common in medieval funerary art, with most surviving examples in sculpture. By the 15th century these could be extremely morbid and explicit, reflecting an increased obsession with death and decay also seen in the Ars moriendi, Danse Macabre, and the overlapping motif of the Memento mori. From the Renaissance such motifs gradually became more indirect, and as the still-life genre became popular, found a home there. Paintings executed in the vanitas style were meant to remind viewers of the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death. They also provided a moral justification for many paintings of attractive objects. Common vanitas symbols include skulls, which are a reminder of the certainty of death; smoke, watches, and hourglasses, which symbolize the brevity of life; and musical instruments, which symbolize brevity and the ephemeral nature of life.There is debate among art historians as to how much, and how seriously, the vanitas theme is implied in still-life paintings explicit masonical imagery such as a skull, square and compass. As in much moralistic genre painting, the enjoyment evoked by the sensuous depiction of the subject is in a certain conflict with the moralistic message.

Leinwandskizze und Hintergrundstruktur


Vanitas es el término latino

Vanitas es el término latino, que puede traducirse por vanidad, que designa una categoría particular de bodegón, de alto valor simbólico, un género muy practicado en la época barroca, particularmente en Holanda.

Su título y su concepción se relacionan con un pasaje del Eclesiastés: vanitas vanitatum omnia vanitas (vanidad de vanidades, todo es vanidad). El mensaje que pretende transmitir es la inutilidad de los placeres mundanos frente a la certeza de la muerte, animando a la adopción de un sombrío punto de vista sobre el mundo. Es, al mismo tiempo, un elemento esencial en el surgimiento del bodegón como género individual.
