Antoine Watteau, Paris, France. But the Enlightment, I believe, gave us new ideas on how to make new art! For example, my paintings which feature figures in aristocratic and theatrical dress in lush imaginary landscapes, had an impact on the development of Rococo art in France and throughout Europe. 16 January 2012 ·.

Watteau drew for the reason that he loved to do this. This is what Watteau senses with astounding genius. His ability to drawn is truly amazing. Sketching continuously was the way he came to recognize the world around him. He was anxieties with public life; but his art is actually enigmatically private. What it really concentrates on is the instant moment. But even more impressive is his modernity. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.

Reviews about Antoine Watteau (2):
Everyone who loves Watteau should have this beautiful book at hand. It has so much to offer in textual analyses, that when you see the actual Watteaus at the Louvre, Posner's delvings into these paintings places you in Watteau's world, a mysterious one, not easily accessed by anyone.

I lament Posner's passing, but I will never lament his great work on Watteau.

I think the treatment of Watteau's "Pelerinage a l'ile de Cythere," 1717 deserves special singularization; to miss this analysis is to be cheated out of a large part of 18th Century French culture.
love it!
