Jean-Baptiste Siméon Chardin was born on November 2th 1699 in Paris.
After being Cazes’ pupil (a painter of historical pictures), he continued his learning with N.Coypel and J.B Van Loo, to finally enter at the Saint-Luc Academia in 1728 with the title of “Animals and fruits painter”. Indeed, it’s with paintings like The skate and the Buffet that his willingness will focus on an expression of daily sides of the reality. In 1896, Henri Matisse will copy these paintings.

In 1733, with Lady sealing a letter, Chardin took a new turn in his work, devoting him to interior scenes, with characters and portraits which will bring him large customers in Europe. His following works depict the simple daily reality: Launder (1737), The housekeeper (1738), The purveyor (1739).

The representation of paintings with children reveals the tenderness and the deep moral commitment of Chardin, combining light colors and rich brightness: Castle of cards

In 1770, while public interest is directed towards Greuze’s art, Chardin gives up oil paint, and focuses more on the pastel. At that time, he depicts one of his most famous painting: Self-portrait (1775).
