L'enfant gâté

Although the engraver, Charpentier who was also the publisher, gives J B S Chardin
as the painter the original painter was probably Champagne.

From "Chardin" by Marianne Roland Michel :  " That the engravings after subjects by Chardin
constituted a well liked genre is confirmed by the proliferation of paintings which they inspired
and also by copies or counterfeits of these subjects. Emile Bocher has discovered about ten prints
by Weiss, Charpentier, Pierre Dupin and Jaques Couché that bear the name of Chardin, as inventor
or as painter, the vulgarity and awkwardness of which show that they are mediocre works 'in the
manner' of Chardin."  (In a note L'enfant Gâté is specifically mentioned)
