Catalogue Note

At the age of fourteen, Jean-Alphonse Roehn left his father's studio for the École des Beaux Arts where he studied under Jean-Baptiste Regnault and Antoine-Jean Gros. Following his father’s suggestion, he later decided to devote himself to genre painting, with a preference for charming and playful subjects drawn from every-day life such as the present work. The signed and dated pendant to the present painting, La Chute du Chat, was formerly with Matthiesen Fine Art, London.
