This is great.


Apparently I have been getting dresses incorrectly all these years...

The African page boy (Mohrenknabe in German, surely the figure is a pun on the engraver's surname!) with parfume-bottles and his toys is almost as from William Hogarth's somewhat earlier painting The Toilette in his series Marriage à la Mode, but lacking the deaper symbolism:

The aged spectacled husband reading a book-isn´t it a portrait of the still-life artist Jean Baptiste Siméon Chardin? At least I am going to paint mine that way.

It is a bit funny that Chardin died in 1779 and the scene takes places a year latter and was never married to a woman that younger than himself.

La toilette - Berliner Zinnfiguren - engraved by Mohr


Another birthday buy I have also found completely charming by the incomparable, Mohr.
