François Boucher

435 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #1755
Rococo   •   François Boucher @ Wikipedia

The talent was already given him by his father Nicolas Boucher, a design artist for furniture and decorations, from the cradle. The works of Francois Boucher extend over almost all genres. In addition to painting, he devoted himself to drawing, etching and copperplate engraving, as well as works in the decorative field.

Mythological representations in bold colors, historical paintings and still lifes can be found in his work as well as ceiling paintings and wall designs. He was particularly interested in the representation of erotic scenes, as the picture " Resting Girl " (1751) shows. When this work was created, Boucher was already a painter at the court of Louis XV. active and was considered a favorite of the mistress of the king, the Marquise de Pompadour.

The young, innocent and playful-looking girl in the middle of the picture, lolls completely naked and unaware of her own erotic charisma, sprawled on the sofa. Often, the seamstress was the painter model, the familiarity between the two is transparent in the picture. Curious, the viewer is on so much blossoming innocence. Probably the king himself, because Marie-Louise O'Murphy, the name of the young woman, later became his mistress. Throughout his life, Francois Boucher was successful and recognized in his work. Member of the Academy in Paris since 1734, he was awarded the Grand Prix de Rome by the Académie royale de peinture et de sculpture. The favor of the king, who named Boucher the first painter at the court in 1765, remained secure until his death. © Meisterdrucke
