Loiseau produced several paintings of still-life compositions, particularly in the 1920’s and onwards. Often painted on board, many of these works were done at Pont-Aven between 1922 and 1928. As Didier Imbert has noted of the painter’s method and technique, ‘essentially impressionist in his depiction of landscapes or street scenes, it acquires for the still-lifes a certain classical resonance, a staid geometric composition, almost synthetic, in which one perceives his preoccupation with immobility, lack of movement, the static quality of the object represented.' This work may be dated to around 1923. The ceramic plate or pan in which the eggs are placed reappears in a number of paintings by Loiseau.
