Soap Bubbles 1734 by Molly Via Flickr: Soap Bubbles Jean Siméon Chardin (French, 1699–1779) Oil on canvas; 24 x 24 7/8 in. (61 x 63.2 cm) Wentworth Fund, 1949 (49.24) The idle play of children was a favorite theme of Chardin’s.

While it is not certain that he intended the picture to carry a message, soap bubbles usually allude to the transience of life.
