Ph. Nusbaumer, Jacques Linard 1597 - 1645, Catalogue of painted works, n°26, reproduced.

About fifty of Linard's paintings are known today, a large part of which is not located. The exhibition Les peintres de la réalité in 1934 marked the rediscovery of Linard; in 1935 the Louvre acquired La Corbeille de fleurs, followed by several others.
The 1640s were an important period in the artist's output. Several works close to our own are now preserved in museums, such as Bouquet of Flowers, with the Cup to the Poet preserved in Madrid, Fundacion Thyssen - Bornemisza, or Fruit Basket with a Melon on the Right
preserved in the Bowes Museum, Great Britain (see P. Nusbaumer, Jacques Linard 1597-1645, Catalogue de l'œuvre peint, Paris, 2006, n°22 and n°29, reproduced).
