From "A Family Collects: Paintings and Sculpture from the Codman House," Concord Museum, 1993-1994: In the late eighteenth century small paintings were often grouped in balanced arrangements on the walls of a room. Although framed as a pair to be hung together, these two genre scenes (scenes of everyday life) are not related in subject matter nor do they appear to be by the same artist. One depicts a camp of soldiers, complete with camp followers, while the other depicts dwellings of peasants. SECOND LABEL: In the late eighteenth century small paintings were often grouped in balanced arrangements on the walls of a room. The two interiors are genre scenes (scenes of everyday life) painted by a French artist in the style of the seventeenth-century Dutch masters Adriaen van Ostade and David Teniers. The landscapes on either side, although framed as a pair to be hung together, are not related in subject matter nor do they appear to be by the same artist. One depicts a camp of soldiers, complete with camp followers, while the other depicts dwellings of peasants.
