Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin Still Life with Copper Pot, Cheese and Eggs
Not on view
Although this appears to be a seventeenth-century Dutch still-life, it was made in the eighteenth century by the Parisian painter Chardin. He assembled some everyday objects, like a large copper pan, some pottery and food, placing them in soft lighting.
Chardin was a great admirer of Dutch seventeenth-century masters, such as Pieter Claesz and Willem Heda, although he painted much more freely than his predecessors.
