Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695) was a French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century. Most of his fables and stories depict sly foxes and scheming cats, vain birds and greedy wolves, all of which subtly express his penetrating insights into French society and the beasts found in all of us. The artist Jean Baptist Oudry (1686–1755) is known for his dramatic still lifes of dead game. The illustrator Charles-Dominique-Joseph Eisen is best known for his illustrations for de La Fontaine.
