after Jean-Frédéric Schall1752 – 1825

Jean-Frédéric Schall was born in Strasbourg and studied at the city’s public drawing school. He later entered the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, Paris, in 1775. He built his reputation upon intimate erotic and pastoral paintings in the soft, sentimental style pioneered by Jean-Antoine Watteau and Jean-Honoré Fragonard earlier in the century. With the fall of the Ancien Régime in 1789, however, the Rococo style of which the artist was a late exponent fell out of fashion. Schall adapted his style and continued to thrive: his The False Appearance (Musée des Beaux-Arts, Strasbourg) was awarded a prize in the Salon of 1798.
