French painting

François Boucher's career flourished in the mid-18th century, when he was the favorite painter of Louis XV's mistress, the marquise de Pompadour. His work enjoyed official success, but was critized by Diderot and the Encyclopedists for its ''simple'' technique and frivolous subject matter.
