Based on a work by Vincenzo Campi of the school of Cremona, owened for a period by the engraver Picart, as stated in the caption. The print illustrated a moment of family life. Bernard Picart (1673–1733), student of Etienne, after having studied at the Academy of Paris, went to the Basque Countries and worked in Brussles and Anversa. In 1710, he left France and moved to Amsterdam, where he worked until his death. His work was based on illustrations from many portrait and history books, genre scenes, and prints of reproductions of famous artists, including Rembrandt, Poussin, Campi and Guido Reni.
