Biblioth. du Palais des Arts



By this denomination of the five senses, is understood the organs of which man makes use when he puts into action, either his sight, hearing, taste, smelling, or feeling, it was therefore to express these various sensations that the artist Stella put together five persons, each of whom exercises more particularly one of his senses.

On the right, a woman, whose back is turned to the spectator appears wishing to gather a rose she is smelling attentively. Near her, a man finishes emptying a glass that contained some liquor, the remains of which he is tasting with pleasure. On the other side, a woman playing on a lute, imparts to him most harmonious sounds that agreeably flatter the hearing of both : she is seated on the knees of a man who closely presses her and thus indicates feeling. As to sight, it is represented by an old man whose head only is seen and who appears very attentive at the scene.

This picture, which is well coloured, belonged to M. Haquin; it has lately been sold to M. Papin, and has been done in Lithography by M. Feraut.

Width 1 foot 9 inches; height 1 foot 3 inches.
