Description: This painting exemplifies the scenes of everyday life for which Greuze became so famous. After his unsuccessful attempt to gain acceptance to the Académie Royal as a high-status history painter, Greuze concentrated on painting scenes of peasant life. Here Greuze has paid great attention to detail and has used soft colouring to depict the badly illuminated, modest dwelling. Such works became very popular during the artist's lifetime.
