Catalogue Note

This delightful double sided drawing is a characteristic example of Lancret's handling of the red chalk medium, with both of the figures portrayed, recto and verso, connected to known paintings by the artist. The reclining male figure (recto) can be found in the right foreground of Lancret's Réunion galante en plein air,1 housed at Sanssouci, Potsdam, whilst the standing female figure (verso), is used by the artist as the central figure in two closely comparable paintings depicting Le Berger Indécis,2 one of which is housed in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
