"Tableau Les Enfants Peintres, Atelier, Jeune Modèle, Fin XVIIIème (144cm X 98cm)"Oil on canvas depicting a workshop scene with young children. This work was executed by a French School at the end of the 18th century.
There are two young boys in front of an easel, one in painting, the other in pencil. The young painter holds his palette and paints the portrait of the girl posing as a model. The second boy treats his neighbor's work with a pencil on paper. The girl poses almost naked, just covered with a white drape. She is wearing a pearl necklace.
In the background, there is an architecture with columns, which overlooks trees and the sky at sight. The theme of "artist workshop" with young children is very original and very rare. Its beautiful dimension, as well as its time, add to its quality and originality.
This painting is in good condition, some very old restorations, on its original canvas (Photo from the back). The canvas at the top left is slightly relaxed. Its frame is in wood and golden stuck, it is posterior (Some accidents).
