Jean Jouvenet, master status in 1658, presented a version of The Education of the Virgin Mary in 1699 at the Salon of the Louvre Gallery. St. Anne in the center of the composition, is seated on the arm of a large armchair, reading with her finger to show letters on the parchment to kneeling Mary. Joachim is above and seems to be supervising the lesson.
