Folded fan, the cream silk sheet painted with compositions on the theme of love framing a scene emblematic of the manners and customs of the last years of the 18th century. A young village girl dressed in white, wearing the cordon of the Order of the Holy Spirit, receives a crown of roses from the lord of the village. She is thus distinguished for the purity of her morals and the example of her life. A lady of good society on the right probably evokes Madame de Genlis who was one of the first to support these manifestations recognizing virtue.
Fisherman sketched on the reverse.
