Antoine Watteau

[[Rosalba Carriera]], ''Portrait of Antoine Watteau'', {{circa}} 1721, showing the artist in the last year of his life. {{Interlanguage link|Musei Civici di Treviso|lt=Musei Civici|it|Musei civici di Treviso|WD=}}, [[Treviso]] Jean-Antoine Watteau (, , ; baptised October 10, 1684died July 18, 1721) was a French painter and draughtsman whose brief career spurred the revival of interest in colour and movement, as seen in the tradition of Correggio and Rubens. He revitalized the waning Baroque style, shifting it to the less severe, more naturalistic, less formally classical, Rococo. Watteau is credited with inventing the genre of ''fêtes galantes'', scenes of bucolic and idyllic charm, suffused with a theatrical air. Some of his best known subjects were drawn from the world of Italian comedy and ballet. Provided by Wikipedia
