Garlande de Fleurs

Carlo Maratta


Carlo Maratta (1625-1713) was one of the leading painters of the Roman school in the later 17th century and one of the last great masters of Baroque classicism. His final works offer an early example of “arcadian good taste” (named for the Academy of Arcadians, of which he was a member), a style that was to dominate Roman art for the first half of the 18th century

Francois Boucher

Artist Francois Boucher, 1703-1770, enjoyed a brilliant career in art: from professor to Rector of the Academy, becoming head of the Royal Gobelin factory in 1755 and finally "Premier Peintre du Roi" (First Painter of the King) in 1765. Boucher was the favourite painter of the Marquise de Pompadour (1721-1764), mistress of King Louis XV, whose name became synonymous with Rococo art. Boucher was not only a painter, he also designed theatre costumes and sets and tapestry. His themes were also reproduced onto porcelain and biscuit-ware at the Vincennes and Sèvres factories.
