Catalogue Note

Antoine Vollon, renowned for his still life paintings, began his career in Lyon as a student at the local École des Beaux-Arts from 1850 - 52. After moving to Paris in 1859 he became interested in the genre due to the encouragement of Théodule Ribot and François Bonvin, whose influence is evident in the present work. In 1863, the Salon des Refusés counted him among the exhibitors, and two years later he was accepted into the official Salon, where he would continue to exhibit regularly. Recognition of his distinguished career arrived in 1897 when he was elected as a full academician of the Académie des Beaux-Arts.
