    This article explores some of the artistic influences on the depiction of objects in Don DeLillo's fiction, from seventeenth-century Dutch still life painting to American Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art. It argues that the relationship between the depictions of objects encountered on the textual surface of DeLillo's prose and some of the American and European painting that has influenced his work illustrates the endless complexity of the idea of influence itself.
