Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin (November 2, 1699 ¿ December 6, 1779) was an 18th-century French painter. He is considered a master of still life. He favored simple yet beautifully textured still lifes, and sensitively handled domestic interiors and genre paintings. Simple, even stark, paintings of common household items and an uncanny ability to portray children's innocence in an unsentimental manner found an appreciative audience in his time, and account for his timeless appeal. Chardin painted humble scenes that deal with simple, everyday activities. He used blocky simple forms perfectly organized in space, and few colors, mostly earth tones. He was a master of textures, shapes, and the soft diffusion of light.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
