Origin Edit

Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin (1699-1779) was a French painter, known for his detailed and luminous painting technique that focused exclusively on common objects or simple activities.

A member of the Royal Academy of Painting, Chardin was a successful painter who entertained a high esteem during his lifetime, including being able to meet and present in front of King Louis XV. His unique artistic perspective that captured more contemplative scenes in breathtaking detail was a far cry from the neoclassicism that his contemporaries utilized, and yet his popularity continued, likely in part because of how much of life one could see in his work.

Chardin's success eventually faded, however, with the suicide of his son in Venice in 1767. This event accompanied a changing public change in art, a humiliating loss of power at the Royal Acadamy by new management, and the loss of his eye sight, all of which drove Chodin into obscurity until his death.

Effects Edit

Imbued with Chardin's ability to capture moments in time, his bubble pipe now has the ability to create large, super-strong bubbles that actively seek to envelop individuals at the user's direction. However, the bubbles will suffocate those trapped within them, and can only be popped by command of the user.

Collection Edit

Warehouse 13 Agents responded to a ping in Salerno Italy after it was discovered 520 individuals on board Train Number 8017 had mysteriously died. Though officially declared asphyxiation from carbon monoxide poisoning after idling in a tunnel for thirty minutes, Warehouse Agents were able to track down this artifact, in use by a Mrs. Angelique De'Ouvrard, who had used the blower out of revenge for her best friend, who had been fatally assaulted on that train in the year prior.
