Still-Life with Fruits
500 x 397 • 77 KB
Still Life with Fruit is considered one Louise Moillon's most outstanding paintings, produced at the height of her career. While her earlier compositions were simpler and made less elaborate use of lighting and colour, this canvas displays a more sophisticated sense of composition. The light is heavily focused on the objects at the centre of the work, creating strategic shadows that add background depth. Her rich, subtle and harmonious use of color enhance the balance of the composition. Every object in this still life is rendered in meticulous detail.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
