Called "Enfant a son ecriture" by the auctioneers (see provenance below), this small oil on panel painting shows an aristocratic girl writing under dictation of her lady-tutor.
Mlle Marguerite Gerard (1761 Grasse -1837 Paris) was a younger sister of Mme Fragonard, wife of the painter Honore Fragonard. At the age of 14 she came to Paris into the house of her famous brother-in-law, where he began to instruct her in drawing and etching. Soon she started to paint family scenes in a genre that perfectly matched the taste of her time, so that she soon became famous in Paris. She exhibited at the Salon from 1799 to 1824, and obtained a First Class Medal in 1806. She painted mainly in oil, pastel and watercolor, did etchings and sometimes miniatures.
