please explain these sentence for me. i'll really appreciate it
1.Famous works you will find in this museum are Cezanne's still life 'Apples and Oranges', Whistler's famous portrait 'Whistler's Mother', and Vincent van Gogh's magnificent oil on canvas 'Starry Night Over the Rhone'. What does “still life” mean? Does it mean the painter is still alive? Or the painting if vitality?
2.When first constructed, the daring and strange architecture of Centre Georges Pompidou had Paris residents in a heated debate. Many were offended by the curious design of the building. The building's insides are situated on the outside and color coded: water pipes are green, air ducts are blue, electrics are yellow, and things like elevators and escalators are red. I can’t get “insides are situated on the outside” and “color coded”. Please help.
