Cornell University Press, 1984 - Biography & Autobiography - 300 pages
Here is the definitive study of the great painter Antoine Watteau (1684-1721), best known for his exquisite fetes galantes--scenes of the pastoral pleasures of elegant society. Until now, critical interpretations of this remarkable artist have been shaped by essentially Romantic views. Donald Posner provides a reassessment of the life and work of Watteau; his account is enriched with reproductions of all of Watteau's paintings and major studies.
