Jean-Jacques Flipart: L'ouvrière en tapisserie [The Embroiderer]

  • Announced in the 'Mercure de France' November 1757. An impression was exhibited at the Salon in December 1757.

    Flipart's engravings are characterized by their meticulous execution and the ability to convey the subtleties of light and shadow, texture, and expression. His work played a significant role in the spread of Rococo art and the works of French painters of the 18th century. 

    Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin was venerated as a master of genre painting. Chardin’s primary subject was “la vie silencieuse” (or “the silent life”)—humble, everyday scenes and vignettes.
