Summary Charming yet scholarly, this book explores the work of the French artist Jean Baptiste Sim̌on 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. - Publisher
