Louise Mouillon (1610-1696), the most famous master of the French still life of the 17th century, performed works for the high aristocracy of France and the English king Charles I. The amazing technique of the artist's painting caused her work to be confused with canvases of the Dutch, Flemish and even German masters. However, Muillon still lifes are not as complex as the works of Dutch painters, and more calm. Her compositions with carefully written fruits and vegetables lying on the table, in wicker baskets or porcelain vases, are usually executed from a high point of view.

Louise Muillon infrequently included images of people in her works. Picture "Saleswoman of fruits and vegetables" combines still life and genre scene. The figures of the owner of the fruit shop and her guest are a little fettered: the artist with greater love wrote the gifts of the land offered for sale than their owner and buyer.
