Antoine Watteau Antoine Watteau - Biography

Antoine Watteau counts among the greatest masters of French Rococo. Among the preferred subjects of Antoine Watteau are merry country trips and open-air concerts, which seem to illustrate the desire for Arcadia. Based on these motifs, the "Fêtes galantes" paintings began to develop as an independent genre. They showed merry and yet refined, often eroticized depiction of courtly celebrations in the open air. With their light and airy stroke of the brush and their delicate coloring, the works captivate the observer's attention. The excellent imagery of Antoine Watteau were already highly valued by his contemporaries and were popular motifs for reproductive graphic prints. Despite his timely death, Antoine Watteau died in 1721 at the age of 36 - he left behind an extensive oeuvre that can be admired in the world's renowned museums today, for instance in the Louvre in Paris or the National Gallery in London.
