The beginning of the 18th century saw the introduction of a new genre within French painting, fêtes galantes or ”elegant parties”, which feigned to depict the aristocracy and their ritualised social gatherings, pastimes, and courting. Several later painters adopted elements from the genre but combined it with more rustic settings and characters, thereby creating more everyday-like scenes.

A depiction of children playing At first glance, Lancret’s depiction of children playing looks like an everyday scene, but it also holds allusions to the codified diversions of the upper classes. The children are well-dressed, and the fragment of architecture to the right suggests that they are frolicking in one of those parks that were often the settings of the aforementioned elegant parties. The picture also contains traces of the subtle erotic allusions typical of the genre in the game played by the four girls with the adolescent boy in their midst.

The girls playing, the boy trying to conquer The objective of the game is for the person in the middle to conquer a place from one of the four opponents in the four corners. Here, the boy’s attempts at making his first conquest are frustrated by the girls’ teasing gestures and secret signs. The younger children in the background are still too young to play the game and are having the rules explained to them by a slightly older boy.

Select a art print material variant

We offer a range of different materials and sizes for every product. Select your favorite size and material among the subsequent choices:

  • Aluminium dibond print: Aluminium Dibond prints are prints on metal with an outstanding effect of depth. For the Aluminium Dibond print, we print the favorite work of art on the surface of the white-primed aluminum material.
  • Canvas: A canvas print, not to be confused with a painting on a canvas, is a digital replica printed on an industrial printer. The great advantage of canvas prints is that they are relatively low in weight, meaning that it is quite simple to hang the Canvas print without the support of additional wall-mounts. Therefore, a canvas print is suited for any kind of wall.
  • Printed poster (canvas material): The poster print is a printed sheet of canvas paper with a slight structure on the surface. It is particularly suited for putting the art print with the help of a special frame. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the poster we add a white margin between 2-6 cm around the work of art to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • The acrylic glass print: An acrylic glass print, often labelled as a fine art print on plexiglass, will convert your favorite original artwork into great décor. The artwork will be manufactured with the help of modern UV direct printing machines. The result of this are vibrant, impressive color tones. The major upside of a plexiglass fine art print is that sharp contrasts and details become more exposed with the help of the granular gradation in the picture.
