The young actress Mademoiselle Olivier, born in London in 1764, was one of the great hopes of the Comédie-Française, unfortunately taken too soon from life in 1787. Symbolized here by a broken olive tree, the man mourning her is probably one of her lovers, the actor Joseph-Jean-Baptiste Albouy, known as Dazincourt (1747-1809).
