Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). Creator: Unknown

Gobelins weaving, France, 18th century, (1898). 'Fig 1: Chair-seat by Louis Tessier, Louis XV [c1715-1774]. Fig 2: Basket of fruit by the same Artist, Louis XV. Fig 3: Garland of fruit by the same Artist (Louis XV.). Fig 4: Chair-Back by Jacques, Louis XVI [c1774-1792]. Fig 5: Doorpanel by this Artist, Louis XVI. Drawn by W. Vivien, Paris...It is no wonder, therefore, that in the ensuing period under Louis XV and XVI Artists such as Watteau, Boucher, Tessier, Jacques and others should have taken up the work, or that they were certain of a triumph in the pursuit of a special department of art. For instance, if we observe the tasteful manner in which Tessier, the king's-flower painter, could group his flowers and fruit in characteristic garlands, and bouquets, we shall not hesitate to reckon him one of the finest flower-painters of the French school. The details here represented, from important works by this master, give some idea of his marked ability'. Plate 82b from "The Historic Styles of Ornament" translated from the German of H. Dolmetsch. [B.T. Batford, London, 1898]

'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]
