This is an unusual subject for Chardin, but one that was very common in the realm of still-life painting as a whole. The paint is also applied more thinly than in the majority of Chardin's works, being only stained on to the canvas. The fur is however rendered with the usual fastidious care and expertise found in the artist's still-lifes.

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.
