Description These peasant figures may have been copied from Chelsea gold-anchor figures, which in turn were copied from Meissen models of the 1750's. Peasant subjects were an important element of the rococo and were inspired by the pastoral scenes of Watteau, Boucher, and other French rococo artists.
Provenance E. F. Bonaventure, New York [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Henry Walters, Baltimore, 1911, by purchase; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
