[La Statue animée]


[The Drawing Lesson]

In a corner of the garden we see an ornamental fountain. An old professor comes along, looking for a nice spot where he can teach his pupils. Finding the fountain to his liking he goes after his scholars. A mysterious person who has noticed the old man, by means of a balloon, a handkerchief and a coat, constructs a peculiar figure doing a lot of tricks at the same time. The professor returns with his class and all prepare for work, when, at the sign of the juggler, the statue comes to life, makes fun of the professor and finally is transformed into a fountain surmounted by a dolphin, throwing up streams of water. The unlucky professor loses his balance, tumbles into the water and gets a shower bath while the pupils sketch the scene. A most laughable subject.

The Drawing Lesson or the Living Statue

In a corner of the gardens at Versailles we see an ornamental fountain with beautiful colonnades. Along comes an old professor looking for a nice spot to teach his pupils. Finding the fountain to his liking, he goes after his scholars. A mysterious person, who has notices the old man, by means of a balloon, a handkerchief and a coat, constructs a peculiar figure, doing a lot of tricks at the same time. The professor comes back with his class and all prepare for work when, at a sign of the juggler, the statue comes to life, makes fun of the professor and finally is transformed into a fountain, surmounted by a dolphin throwing up streams of water. The unlucky professor loses his balance, tumbles into the water and gets a most laughable shower bath, while the pupils sketch the scene, laughing themselves to tears.
