He was given provisional membership of the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture on 27 September 1766 and was admitted as a full academician on 25 June 1768.

Diderot described this work as “a rather literal copy of the first figure one sees to the left when entering the Tuileries from the Pont Royal.
