The Clothes are Italian, 1715-16. Creator: Jean Antoine Watteau (French, 1684-1721)

The Clothes are Italian, 1715-16. Dressed as stock characters of the Italian commedia dell'arte , an improvisational form of comic theatre, five performers gather beside the curtain of a stage with a garden backdrop. Columbine stands in the center next to Pierrot, who has especially long sleeves and a broad, round collar. Harlequin offers a glimpse of his diamond-pattern coat as he peers over Columbine's shoulder at the audience. Primarily a painter, Watteau made very few etchings, and this impression of The Clothes Are Italian is very rare. Before the print was published, Charles Simonneau, a professional engraver, heavily reworked the image, ruining the spontaneity of Watteau's etching. Fortunately, three surviving examples preserve his original, in which shimmering parallel lines bask the performers in an ethereal light

A Fete Champetre, (Pastoral Gathering), 18th century, (1910). Artist: Jean-Antoine Watteau

A Fete Champetre, (Pastoral Gathering), 18th century, (1910). The Fete champetre was a popular form of entertainment in the 18th century, taking the form of a garden party. Particularly popular at the French court in the gardens of Versailles. Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721) is known for his lyrical depictions of well-bred gentlemen and ladies engaged in intimate conversation and music making in park-like settings, which came to define the opulent and refined atmosphere of the early Rococo period in France. From The Connoisseur Vol XXVII. [Otto Limited, London, 1910]
