Explore the paintings

Three versions of this subject are known, including one in the Hermitage, St Petersburg. It is not known which of the three was the one exhibited at the Salon of 1775. Evidently a popular composition, it was also engraved in 1785.

Le Prince specialised in genre scenes often, like this one, with an exotic flavour.
