French school of the 18th century - The fortune-teller

French school in the second half of the 18th century - "The fortune-teller"

Canvas of 46 cm by 33 cm.
Superb frame of 72 cm by 59 cm.

Very good condition-some old restorations-old housekeeping (19th).

In the tradition of French rococo painting, from "Watteau to Fragonard", the artist has brilliantly resumed a genre scene, a theme appreciated throughout the 18th century until the revolution.

The line is fine, the expressions and the postures are perfectly well rendered all with a generous range of colors. The whole is obviously very successful.

In an idealized rural setting, a lady of quality, accompanied by her suite, is told fortunes.

The three personages perched on the portico, with an immense red curtain like a firm theater scene, observe the scene with an undisguised interest! Others play, frolic or rest.

"The Art Institute of Chicago" owns a painting of this same scene realized by another artist.
