Biography Antoine Monnoyer
Antoine Monnoyer traveled to England several times in the company of his father, where he became one of the most successful still life painters of his time. Further travels to Italy and Sweden (for the decoration of the Royal Palace in Stockholm) are documented.
Under the influence of such artists as Simon Hardimé, Monnoyer further developed the genre of the stately still life, which had been established by his father in Versailles. The signature “Baptiste” appears in several works of the artist and may be regarded as a means of sales promotion employed by the son, who sought to continue his father’s success.
