This drawing, resurfaced in November of 2019 in French antique trade, with 18th century Russian genre scene is signed "Le Prince fe.(cit)" and is an extremely rare on current antique market watercolor (sic!) by well-known French artist Jean-Baptiste Leprince (Le Prince) who stayed in Russia for five years (between 1757-1863 - see his biography below).
Jean-Baptiste Leprince (also Le Prince) was a very well-known French painter and engraver of the 18th century. He was born in 1734 in Metz as son of the sculptor Jean-Baptiste Leprince. He studied under Boucher and Vien and made a study trip to Italy (1754). In 1757 he moved via Holland to St. Petersburg where lived until 1762 and painted many supraports and other decorations for Tsar's residence Winter Palace. From St. Petersburg he visited Moscow, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and even West Siberia. As he went back to Paris (1763), he became an "Agree" (1764), "Academicien" (1765) and "Conseiller" of the Academy (1775). His work "Bapteme Russe", which Diderot admired (Salon 1765), is now housed in Louvre. From 1765 on Leprince regularly exhibited at the Salon. He was also famous as engraver and book illustrator.
