History allegory, 18th-century artwork

History allegory. 18th-century allegorical artwork of the discipline of history. A winged Father Time figure (with scythe) supports a winged putto writing a book. Other symbols include an hourglass and the Sun behind a temple. This is one of a series of scientific and medical allegories painted by French artist Jacques de Lajoue (1687-1761). These later engravings were commissioned by the French chemist Louis Joseph d'Albert d'Ailly (1741-1792), who had become Duke of Picquigny in 1769. The engravings (on laid paper) were by French artist Charles-Nicolas Cochin (1715-1790). Details of artists and publication are inscribed in French at bottom
