One Work by Louis-Marc-Antoine Bilcoq

Biography

Bilcoq was a second-rate imitator of J.-B.-S. Chardin and J.-B. Greuze, whose pictorial ideas he combined with motifs from Dutch painters. Little is known of his life and work; he was accepted into the Academy as late as 1789 as a genre painter. Since there has as yet been no scholarly study of this artist, one assumes that many of his paintings are now attributed to other painters of the time.
