Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin (1699-1779) - Still Life with Attributes of the Arts (1766)
Russia Stamp issued 1973
Held at the Hermitage Museum, St Petersburg
This modest still life makes for a rather ordinary stamp. Issued by Russia in 1973, this is another work by Chardin, who was a great French Rococo era painter. His works are held in galleries all over the work, including the Louvre inParis and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
Other Russian stamps have also been issued with Chardin's work: Saying Grace - Chardin.
