Description

One of the most lavish tributes paid to the memory of Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721) was the publication of four volumes of more than 600 prints (1726-35) after all the paintings and drawings known by the master. Boucher was one of the printmakers who worked on the project, which enabled him to study Watteau's draftsmanship, one of the most significant lessons of his early career.
