Charger with still life

François Laurin French

Not on view

This still life is beautifully painted in an Impressionist style. The artist conveys the tactile qualities of details such as artichoke leaves, the carafe of wine, and the folds of the tablecloth. Still lifes were a popular subject among some Impressionist painters.
