French school of the XVIIIth century, workshop of Charles Antoine COYPEL (1694-1752) The game of the candle Rectangular canvas formerly oval 76,5 x 94,5 cm Provenance : - Anonymous sale, Paris, nouveau Drouot, June 14, 1984 (Mes Audap, Godeau, Solanet), #51, reproduced. - Private collection, Paris Bibliography : - Th. Lefrancois, Charles Coypel, Paris, 1994, cited p. 208 under number 73 (early copy). Note : Remake of a painting by Coypel kept in a private collection (see Th. Lefrancois, opus quoted above n°73 reproduced). The subject is very rare in French painting: the difficulty for people with deformed faces to blow out a candle. The subject is better known in Northern painting and allows us to study candlelight.
