Bouquet of Carnations, Tuberoses and Sweet Peas in a White Porcelain Vase with Blue Decoration
Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin - circa 1760-1763
975 x 1200 • 540 KB
A late work that shows Chardin in a slightly freer mood than usual. The delicacy of the vase and freshness of the flowers has been superbly caught. The flower on the table breaks the line of the table top as the knife does in "The Copper Cauldron" (Musée Cognacq-Jay, Paris).
