Answer
Dear Cindy,

You have reproduction prints after paintings by eighteenth century French artist Jean Baptiste Simeon Chardin,(1699-1779). Chardin is arguably considered one of the master artists of the eighteenth century and the greatest master of still life in the history of painting.Catalda Fine Arts was very productive in reproductions of famous paintings or paintings by famous artists during mid-twentieth century.

I hope this information is helpful.

Best regards,
Dolly
