More about this artwork
Games or amusement with caged or uncaged birds - at least in connection with pastoral themes - carried erotic connotations. In this painting Lancret has generalized the subject, which found a strong echo in numerous print reproductions and even as craft objects. The painting was once in the collection of Frederick the Great at Potsdam.
