Notes

Summary:
The topic is the prayer preceding the meal, treated by the Dutch Masters of the 18th century, is reinterpreted in this scene filled with tenderness and reserve. This is one of most famous works of Chardin. His technical skill gave his paintings an uncannily realistic texture. He rendered forms by means of light by using thick, layered brushstrokes and thin, luminous glazes. Called the grand magician by critics, he achieved a mastery in these areas unequaled by any other 18th-century painter. Chardin's early support came from aristocratic patrons, including King Louis XV.
