Beschreibung

One of the most bright and unique artists of the 18th century, living only 36 years, Antoine Watteau had an influence on the development of Rococo art in France and throughout Europe. Appreciation for the Watteau like draftsman has always been equal to that of his paintings. He usually not to have made sketches for programmed compositions, but it seems that filled his sketchbooks with penetrating depictions of figures drawn from life, which he would later dig for his paintings. Watteau drew for the reason that he loved to do this. Sketching continuously was the way he came to recognize the world around him. He was anxieties with public life; but his art is actually enigmatically private. What it really concentrates on is the instant moment. This is what Watteau senses with astounding genius. His ability to drawn is truly amazing. But even more impressive is his modernity.

Foreword

One of the most brilliant and original artists of the eighteenth century, Antoine Watteau (1684–1721) had an impact on the development of Rococo art in France and throughout Europe lasting well beyond his lifetime. Living only thirty-six years, and plagued by frequent illness, Watteau nonetheless rose from an obscure provincial background to achieve fame in the French capital during the Regency of the duc d'Orléans. His paintings feature figures in aristocratic and theatrical dress in lush imaginary landscapes. Their amorous and wistful encounters create a mood but do not employ narrative in the traditional sense. During Watteau's lifetime, a new term, fête galante, was coined to describe them. Watteau was also a gifted draftsman whose sparkling chalk sheets capture subtle nuances of deportment and expression.

The son of a roofer, Watteau was born in 1684 in Valenciennes, a small city in the north that had only been ceded to France from the Spanish Netherlands six years earlier. Details of his initial training remain obscure, but early biographers concur that shortly upon arriving in the French capital, Watteau was employed in the mass production of crude copies of devotional paintings. Sometime around 1705, he began working for Claude Gillot, who specialized in comic scenes inspired by the commedia dell'arte and who, in turn, introduced him to Claude Audran III (1658–1734), a designer of ornament and interior decoration. Working under these two influential masters, Watteau developed his mature style, increasingly incorporating theatrical subject matter
