one of my favorites at @ngadc ... I didn’t realize this once belonged to Empress Catherine the Great!! #Repost @nicholashjhall
280 years ago today, Jean-Baptiste Chardin exhibited this touching reflection on childhood, the inconstancy of love (note the Queen of Hearts sticking out of the drawer) and transience in general at the French Salon. It was the first ever public exhibition of contemporary French art to take place at the @MuseeLouvre and became a major event at which the leading living French artists competed for critical and public approval. Chardin exhibited seven works in the 1737 Salon. Best known for his deceptively simple still-lives which were admired by later artists such as Manet, Cezanne and Morandi, Chardin also painted numerous scenes from everyday life, such as this, usually with some sort of moral undertone.
This painting was bought by Andrew Mellon in 1930-31 as part of one of the greatest art world deals of the twentieth century. @matthiesengallery, @colnaghi1760 and Knoedler bought from cash-poor Stalin’s Russian government a trove of masterpieces by Van Eyck, Raphael and Rembrandt to name a few. The deal was financed by Andrew Mellon who had first pick, giving the galleries a 25% profit. That included this Chardin House of Cards which had been owned by Empress Catherine the Great. Mellon gave all 17 paintings he bought to the @ngadc in 1937.

David Hockney, My Parents (1977)
In this work, painted a year before
his father's death, Hockney's style has shifted towards a closer study of human behaviour. His mother poses, attentive and graceful, while his father, who fidgeted during sittings, was painted reading Aaron Scharf's book Art and Photography. A book on Chardin draws
a parallel with intimate domestic scenes of the past, as do the volumes of Proust's Remembrance of Things Past visible on the shelf. Piero della Francesca's Baptism of Christ (now in the National Gallery;
see below) is reflected in the mirror, forming a triptych with the two figures. (Description from: http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/hockney-my-parents-t03255)
Bir tavsanim ben. Evet Evet,tam da sizin bildiğiniz türden, mini minnacık bir tavşan. Ama bir farkim da yok değil. Bir sürü kardeşim olsa da ben can atıyorum kahraman olmaya. Dereleri geçecek, irmaklari aşacak, denizlere acilacağim; ilk fırsatta. Korkunç düşmanları alt edecek, sonra döneceğim geriye bir balinanin sirtinda.! #Alexandre#chardin#Mylene#rigaudie

The Brioche by the French painter Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin 1679-1799. Many consider him an absolute master of still life paintings. They were his preferred objects to paint, as were kitchens, domestic personell and children. This is one of my favorites. I like the composition of the objects in the scene and the quality. The brioche looks fabulous and deserves to become ageless in a still life. #chardin#jeanbaptistesimeonchardin#painter#oiloncanvas#thebrioche#stilllife#painting
