*Rococo Revisited
Courtly scenes with dancing couple - Circa 1725
Jean-Baptiste Pater (Valenciennes, 1695 - Paris, 1736)
Circa 1725, oil on canvas, 89 x 69 cm

Imagine a park and trees, some characters taken from theatre and intimate conversations exchanged between suitors and courtesans. The magical world of Antoine Watteau is immediately recognisable. A significant composition from one of the more inspired of his pupils, Jean-Baptiste Pater.
