Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin was an artist of the early 18th century. At this time the predominant form of art was Rococo, mostly associated with merriment and pleasure. Paintings of elegant carnivals, erotic nudity and romantic trysts were abundant, while reality seemed all but absent from the world of art, which is precisely what makes Chardin’s works stand out among the rest of the eighteenth century. His still-lifes are plain and unembellished, and depict the real world that he saw around him, rather than a Rococo fantasy. Chardin was born in 1699 in Paris to the family of a master-carpenter. He lived his entire life in the district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, where he was also christened at the Church of Saint-Sulpice.Read Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin's Full Biography
