Jean Siméon Chardin (French, 1699 – 1779) painted this gorgeous still life of a Seville orange, a silver goblet, two glass bottles, apples, a pear, and nuts on a stone ledge in sublime lighting. Chardin was accepted into the French Academy in 1728, and he became instantly famous as a painter of still life. Great artists such as Courbet, Manet, and Cézanne studied his work. This small oil on canvas work belongs to a private collector, but it is currently on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, in gallery 615.
