The Wicked Son Punished

1778: Louvre, Paris

Greuze won success in the 1760s, when he began exhibiting scenes from the lives of ordinary citizens designed to teach a moral lesson. These story-telling compositions often incorporated figures in dramatic and "staged" poses that had heretofore been reserved for loftier historical and religious subjects.
