Nicolas Lancret: Les Heures du Jour, c. 1740.

Four oil on copper paintings, c. 18 × 36 cm, from top to bottom: morning, midday, afternoon, and evening. In February 1741, engravings of them by Nicolas de Larmessin III were presented to the Academie in Paris. Morning seems to have been exhibited in the Salon of 1739.

It is interesting to compare how differently Caspar David Friedrich treated the same subject eighty years later.
