Book Description
Charming yet scholarly, this book explores the work of the French artist Jean Baptiste Simon Chardin, who brought a breath of fresh air to 18th-century painting. His masterful sense of color and light filled his simple domestic interiors and delicate renderings of still lifes with a profound humanism. A major Chardin exhibition opens in June 2000 at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. 126 illustrations, 86 in full color, 5 x 7"
