From "A Family Collects: Paintings and Sculpture from the Codman House," Concord Museum, 1993-1994: Charles Russell Codman was typical of American collectors in the early nineteenth century who found it perfectly acceptable to acquire a variety of types of paintings by minor artists, paintings with undocumented attributions, and good copies. This painting is thought to be of the school of Francois Boucher. Both the coloring and subject matter--a pastoral scene of a shepherdess and a lamb--are in the style made famous by this prolific eighteenth-century French artist.
