Object description :

"Noël Hallé - The Schoolmaster - Oil On Canvas Circa 1750"
This canvas is an unpublished autograph replica of a lost composition which was very successful when it was exhibited at the Salon of 1751 and which the artist engraved himself.
Four other unsigned versions are listed in Nicole Willk-Brocard's monograph (Une dynastie Les Hallé, Paris, Arthena, 1995, pp. 378-381, n ° 43 ad): the first (N 43a, 64 x 81 CM) is kept at the Lons-le-Saunier museum (Jura), the second (n ° 43b, 53.3 x 64, 7 CM) in a private collection, just like the third (n ° 43c, 56.5 x 76 CM), while the fourth (N 43d, 65 x 82 CM) has been lost sight of since 1939. Another version (64.8 x 80 CM) went on sale in London, at Phillips on July 4, then on December 12, 2000, respectively under the n ° 204 and 106.

The subject relates to one of the major concerns of the time: the education of children.

Appeared in France in the second half of the 18th century, it is nourished by a rich philosophical reflection, in particular by Émile de Rousseau (1762) or by the Journal of Mme de Lespinasse.
