Chardin and Portraiture

showcases an artist who was called the "great magician" for his still lifes and scenes of everyday activity. Jean Siméon Chardin was a member of the Royal Academy who painted figures, mostly women and children, engaged in simple acts of middle-class life. His treatment of the domestic world—contemplative and self-contained—was unprecedented in France and take on the quality of still life. (National Gallery of Art)
