Louise Moillon (1610-1696)
Moillon is the greatest French still-life painter of the seventeenth century. She spent her career in Paris. Her paintings are exquisitely rendered with painstaking attention to detail. She worked for a number of distinguished patrons, including the highest nobility of France and King Charles I of England. Most of her work dates from the 1630's, prior to her marriage in 1640.

Message:Hi! Sorry, but I know very little about her, and you've probably done your project by now anyways! I'm just browsing 'cause I want to include her in my art project on still life! Hope your history work went well, Cyraxis.
