Still-life with Carpet
(? mid 17th century)

Oil on canvas
Civici Musei, Pavia

by Jacques Hupin (active in mid-17th century)

It is not known exactly when this French artist worked, but his elaborate pictures, which c=oncentrate on heavily chased silver and patterned carpets, are close to those of Meiffren Conte (1630-1705).
