The Drawing Lesson and The Music Lesson are pendants. They were displayed in 1808 at the first Exhibition of Living Masters, an event instituted by Louis Napoleon. The interior and figures are inspired by Classical antiquity. The woman’s clothing resembles a Greek robe, and the drawing model for the lesson is a Classical bust, similar to the Greek Revival examples on view in this gallery.
