This undated oil painting on a wooden panel appears to be by the French artist JACQUES LINARD (TROYES 1600-1645 PARIS). This is a beautiful flower arrangement, and it signed Linard on the lower left side of the painting. Sight: 38 (h) x 46 (w) cm. It is housed in a beautiful gilt frame and is overall in excellent condition.
Art historians rediscovered Jacques Linard's work at the beginning of the 20th century, and this artist is now considered one of the best still-life painters of the 17th century in France.
During his lifetime, he received the title of painter and "valet de chamber" to the king in 1631, thus testifying to his fame and the esteem he aroused during his lifetime.
