Picture: Cambi Auction House

Posted by Adam Busiakiewicz:

Here's a painting that is coming up for sale in Cambi Auction House in Italy catalogued as 'French School Eighteenth Century'. Can you find the original picture on which this is based?

No prizes, just for fun.

Update - Congratulations to reader Richard Rand who spotted that this picture is a mixture between Greuze's L'Enfant Gaté (The Spoiled Child) in the Hermitage and featuring the child in Silence! in the Royal Collection.
