In our table, a young girl goes or comes back from her violin lesson. Chaperoned by her mother or a companion, furtive glances are exchanged between the violinist and a young man met on their way. The design is lively and precise, the touch light and removed. The attitudes of the characters are captured instantly.

FH Kaemmerer, Dutch painter, began to study at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, notably with Samuel-Leonardus Verveer, then he studied art in Paris where he was a pupil of Jean-Léon Gêrome from 1863. Very soon noticed in Holland, Kaemmerer went to Paris in 1865 at the invitation of the influential Goupil & Cie gallery; he will be the only Dutch artist of his generation to settle there permanently. The artist exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1870. He received a medal in 1874 and a silver medal at the Universal Exhibition in 1889. He was made Chevallier of the Legion of Honor the same year. He painted a Wedding Hall for the town hall of the 20th arrondissement of Paris. He obtained great success for his small paintings representing subjects of the Directory or the First Empire; also internationally successful where American amateurs competed for his works. Renowned for its mundane scenes, it nevertheless remains close to its friends from the school in The Hague and contributes to exchanges between France and Holland.
