A set of four paintings (with P383, P386 and P397), now framed as two pairs, which was engraved by Filloeul in 1739 as 'Les plaisirs les plus ordinaires de la jeunesse' ('The little pleasures of youth'), each of which was accompanied by a sentimental poem by Charles Moraine explaining the amorous subject matter of the picture. The poem accompanying this particular scene is not known, but the picture obviously evokes the blindness of love through the depiction of Blind-Man’s Buff.
