JEAN SIMÉON CHARDIN
Jean Siméon Chardin was born in Paris on November 2, 1699. Considered to be one of the greatest French and European painters of the 18th century, he is best known for his still lifes, genre paintings and pastel work.
A BIT OF ART HISTORY
Through the use of his favourite colour, rose madder red, he helped spread the reputation of his neighbour, the colour merchant Charles Laclef. This was the very Charles Laclef who’s shop would later become Lefranc Bourgeois. This story has continued for 300 years.
