‘Childhood’ was a subject of which Aufray had a magical understanding. He portrayed a happier and more innocent view of the 19th Century, providing the perfect atmosphere for this extremely popular subject.
This popular artist exhibited regularly at the Paris Salon between 1865 and 1876, and his last exhibit was a Portrait of a Lady in 1885. In 1873 he exhibited several works at an exhibition in Cologne, also exhibiting in London in 1876.
