Still Life with Cheese

Antoine Vollon French

Not on view

In his own day, Vollon was hailed as a second Chardin. This work, probably painted in the late 1870s, exhibits his technical virtuosity in describing the surface, light, and texture of everyday objects. His still lifes, in their choice of theme, palette, and broad handling, reflect the influence of his mentor Ribot, whose work was likewise indebted to seventeenth-century Spanish painting.
