Catalogue Note

The present composition is similar to a signed oil on copper by Lacroix sold in an Anonymous Sale, Paris, Ader Tajan, 10 April 1992, lot 54. Though the central figures and landscape are the same in both works, the figures and landmarks on the left differ slightly. The present composition shows a leafless tree in front of a tower, meanwhile the other has a boat in front of a different tower that is part of a mural. The tree in this canvas is repeated in several other works Lacroix painted circa 1767.

We are grateful to Jean-Luc Ryaux for endorsing the attribution on the basis of photographs.
