Research into the history of Vanitas still-lifes, etymology and terminology of the term “Vanitas” and it’s historical implementation. Over time, the understanding of the term “Vanitas” has taken different shapes and means for society. We now understand, that Vanitas received their hermeneutic purpose only along the late 15th century, becoming an important motive in literature and fine arts. Vanitas served as a political, clerical reference point for society up till the 19th century, and ultimately formed society in its philosophical understanding of beliefs and systems. The project resulted in an analysis, translated in the format of a publication.
