Artist ID:

Jacques Linard (* 1597, Troyes; † September 1645, Paris) was a French Baroque painter. Linard achieved particular fame for his still lifes. His first records of being of artist was in the 1620s. His father, Jehan Linard, was also an artist, known to have been active in Troyes towards the end of the 16th century. None of his works are currently known, although guild records refer to him as a "Master Painter". The earliest record of Jacques presence in Paris comes from 1626. Five years later, in 1631, he married Marguerite Trehoire died c.1663, daughter of the painter Romain Trehoire died 1635. That same year, he was first officially recorded as a painter and a "Royal Chamberlain". He and Marguerite had three sons who died in infancy and a daughter, also Marguerite, who married Jean-Joseph Nau 1642-1698, a Counselor to the King. His sister married Claude Baudesson and gave birth to the still-life painter Nicolas Baudesson. Only about fifty works of his have been positively identified.

Of all the artists of the period who are classified as "Northern Realists", he appears to have been the first in France to base his style on and create themes relating to the "Five Senses" and the "Four Elements". He was interred at the Church of Saint-Nicolas-des-Champs. Most of Linard's paintings are still lifes characterised by naturalistic precision, into which he sometimes introduced moral meanings in the form of vanitas or as allegories such as The Five Senses and the Four Elements.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.
