Louyse Moillon,
the still life in the Grand Siècle
by Dominique Alsina


Catalogue raisonné

Very few women have left a name in the history of painting. Whether by their talent or by their originality, they do not suffer from the comparison with male artists.

Louyse Moillon (Paris, ca. 1610-1696) is perhaps the most illustrious of them, as she occupies a leading position in her genre of still life with fruit and her works are so sought after.

An assertive personality, Louyse Moillon, from her youthful works to those of maturity, has crossed the century following a personal path that gives solidity to her compositions, velvety, subtle transparencies to her fruit, and a mysterious charm to the atmosphere of her garnished tables.

Dominique Alsina has scrutinized and catalogued all of Louyse Moillon's works to distinguish the criteria of authenticity and the stages of the artist's career. He has established a catalogue raisonné of sixty-nine authentic paintings. Exceptionally, eleven of them, including the three in the Louvre, have been the subject of a complete scientific study (a report of nearly 300 pages).

This book presents the light version of the author's doctoral thesis on Louyse Moillon, the catalogue raisonné (bilingual French-English) and a summary of the scientific report.
