2 November, 2015
Considered one of the most prestigious French painters of his time, Jean Siméon Chardin was born in Paris on November 2, 1699. He was consider a master of still life.
In 2011, Prado Museum in Madrid organised an exhibition in conjunction with the bicentenary of his death and the tercentenary of his birth, in 1979 and 1999 respectively, featuring 57 paintings and offering a quite rare opportunity to appreciate Chardin’s work in Spain.
