1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. [not numbered]
Near a luxuriant tree, a youth is seated beside a fair girl, whom he is teaching to play the flageolette. They are attired in the gay costume of the time of Louis XIV. A female attendant and a shepherd are behind them looking on with interest and curiosity, while to the right, a little girl is reclining on the brink of a rivulet, watching the falling water from a sculptured fountain. A vista through the trees shows a bright noon day sky, and a villa and hills in the distance. This picture is painted very minutely, and with great care and delicacy. [P. 4.]
