Fransois Boucher (French art, 1703–1770)


François Boucher (1703-1770), was a masterful French painter of the rococo age, extremely popular then and ever since. He began his artistic career working as an engraver and at the age of 17 entered the art studio of François Le Moyne, who in 1736 became First Painter to King Louis XV. Much of Boucher's early works show the influence of his teacher, but he was also greatly impressed by the delicate style of his contemporary Antoine Watteau. In 1723 Boucher won the Prix de Rome and studied in Rome from 1727 to 1731. Unlike many artistis of the day, he turned what he studied into a uniquely personal style, suitable for large-scale decorations as well as small intimate, so-called cabinet pictures
