The royal Tuileries Palace stood on the right bank of the River Seine until 1871. In the eighteenth century it was used as a theatre, and its gardens became a fashionable resort of Parisians. The couple in this print are watched by their pet dog. Engraved by Jean Baptiste Simonet (1742 - 1810) after a gouache painting by Pierre Antoine Baudouin (1723 - 1769) who worked in Boucher's studio and married his daughter.
