Though usually considered an important genre of fine arts done in academic realism style, still-life is a subject that many Indian modern artists approached in their own unique way. Western modernists were bringing their own influences in these academic genres—Picasso, for instance, creating a unique idiom in his still-life works. Badri Narayan gives in this still-life a personalised creative vocabulary; so, even if the typical tropes exist—flowers in a vase, cut fruit on a platter, a table setting—it all looks extraordinary.
