Maurice Blum
Un evenement au chateau

About

Although Maurice Blum painted in several areas, he was best known in his own time for his interest in eighteenth century history and for his depiction of eighteenth century costumes and scenes. He also was interested in military affairs so it is probable that the >évènement= or >event= or >incident= shown here involves the French Revolution and the army - or what happened on many noble estates and in many noble chateaus when revolutionary forces rose against the ancien regime. The calm and insouciant life of the rural aristocracy may be seen here as three noble gentlemen and their noble female companion are calmly having their afternoon tea. The table is covered with a pressed and recently unfolded white tablecloth, and the blue china cups and amber carafe decorate the surface. All are well dressed, in the finest cloth, and the men sport neatly arranged white wigs. Table and chairs are arranged on an expensive parquet floor, and above the assembled company a clock is prominently displayed on a void wall, strongly suggesting that it is later than one would like to think, and that an era and a way of life soon may be coming to an end. The soldier at the door is sounding an alarm, to which the two younger gentlemen are alertly responding. Little do they imagine, however, what earthshaking events are about to unfold!
