Artist Linard, Jacques (French painter, 1597-1645)

Description Linard (1597-1645) is one of the masters of early French seventeenth-century still life. He is valued for the sobriety and grave simplicity of his paintings and for his sure sense of interval in composing them. He was, with Louise Moillon, Lubin Baugin and Sébastien Stosskopff, one of the pioneers of the genre of still-life painting in France. In the centre of this painting, a large wicker basket holds plums, peaches and a melon with foliage. There are more plums and an opened melon on the stone table.
