The original from which this painting was copied is in a Private Collection in Madrid, For details see Juan J. Luna, ‘Varias pintures de los Lagrenée en Espana, Archivio Espanol de Arte, no. 181, 1973, pp. 35-44. This is a copy of one of the ‘Five Senses’ executed for M. Vogué, and is part of a set of four overdoors. According to experts, they were probably made by Jean-Jacques Lagrenée, but inspired by the work of his elder brother Louis. They worked together for a long time and it is known that Jean-Jacques made a number of overdoor paintings at the Château de la Ferté for the marquis de la Borde. For more details, see also B.M. 862, 863 and 865.
