The Young Schoolmistress: Jean-Baptiste Siméon Chardin

The Young Schoolmistress by French eighteenth-century master of genre painting Jean-Baptiste Siméon Chardin was painted in 1740 at age of 40. The mood is one of quiet but intense concentration as the young woman looks to her charge who is fixated on her learning. Chardin specialised in paintings of basic household activities.

Jean-Baptiste Siméon Chardin’s The Young Schoolmistress is in the National Gallery of Art in London.
