 (also known as The Silver Goblet)
1200 x 943 • 504 KB
Chardin painted this silver goblet many times and it was obviously one of his treasured possessions. This is a work of the upmost simplicity, with only a small number of objects portrayed. The way in which the apples are studies with a single-minded and deep intensity is reminiscent of Cézanne.

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.
