With a less than straightforward trajectory to fame and success, and his name all but forgotten by the time of his death, Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin’s later rediscovery cemented his reputation as one of the most celebrated still life painters. At the time he was working, still life painting was one of the least-acclaimed disciplines; genre and history painting were seen as the ultimate demonstration of artistic ability and anything else was frequently dismissed as merely ‘craft.’ Persisting in his modern, realist style throughout his career, Chardin’s subversive attitude has since awarded him the status of an icon for many modern and contemporary artists.
