Room Salle Watteau, France

Sully wing - 2nd floor - Room 917 - Watteau

French painting

The modern, political flavor of Watteau's highly original art drew much acclaim during the French Regency. His work was influenced by the French colorists, and also by his master, Claude Gillot, who introduced him to the fête galante and scenes drawn from the theater.
