Greuze maintained a stable of printmakers to interpret and market his designs. A pupil of Beauvarlet, one of his favorite engravers, Binet was a late participant. Le ménage captures the bold design and moralizing concern of a highly finished drawing that has been lost. An unrecorded proof, this impression is exceptionally strong but precedes an inscription underscoring the meaning: "These good folks carry everything with them.”
