Louise Moillon
(French, 1609 - 1696)
This person is associated with: Baroque

This person is known for her Baroque Still Lifes. Baroque artist Louise Moillon was the premier still life artist of her time. Most of Louise Moillon's signed paintings are dated between 1629 and 1637, while there is also a work of 1641 painted in collaboration with Pieter van Boekel (Pierre van Boucle) and Jacques Linard which was a large composition with fruits and flowers. Some of her later works date from 1674. The high esteem in which her work was held is demonstrated by the fact that Charles I of England had five fruit pieces by the artist. The gap in her work is not fully understood, though a Calivinist husband is implicated.

She produced about 60 works.
