Photograph of a work by Ary Scheffer, the prime version of which was created in the 1820s. The image depicts a christening party standing and facing towards a church to the left.

Scheffer (and his studio) continued throughout his life to produce new works of old compositions on demand. His paintings were also widely reproduced as etchings.
