Study of an armchair with various newspapers

Margaret Louisa Herschel

This 'study of an armchair with various newspapers' was done by Louisa Heschel presumably from life. While paintings, plaster casts of statues and parts of statues provided by their art tutor for his students to copy would have made up a large part of the Herschels' artistic education, the children were also encouraged to practice sketching what they saw around them. Calling the composition 'Intelligence' is a joke, for it implies that intelligence is purely the product of reading newspapers. This combination of composition and jokey title is sometimes called a 'conceit'.
