Marguerite Gérard cultivated a calm, analytical world which highlighted well-rendered details, as well as landscapes and still lifes; she provided her audience, which reclaimed traditional values, with an antidote to Neoclassicism.

This work, which was also engraved by Henri Gérard under the same title, was assigned to the Louvre Museum by the Commission for Choosing Works of Art for the Artistic Recovery dated December 21, 1949.
