Let them eat cake

Jean-Baptiste Siméon Chardin ~ La Brioche or Le Dessert, 1763 [Louvre, Paris, France]

"We have learned from Chardin that a pear is as living as a woman, that an ordinary piece of pottery is as beautiful as a precious stone." - Marcel Proust
Edouard Manet ~ Nature Morte à la Brioche, 1880
