18th century
29.3 cm x 44 cm (11 9/16 in. x 17 5/16 in.)

Circle of Jean-Antoine Watteau (Valenciennes, 1684 - 1721, Nogent-sur-Marne, near Paris) Primary

Object Type: drawing
Artist Nationality: Europe, French
Medium and Support: Red chalk on cream antique laid paper
Credit Line: Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Archer M. Huntington Museum Fund, 1982
Accession Number: 1982.725

A group of drawings by Watteau in red chalk copy earlier Italian sheets in the great collection of his patron Pierre Crozat. The symmetrical structure and distinct planes of this composition derive from seventeenth-century Roman examples. The touch, however, is a bit tentative––note the uncertain path of many lines––and the handling is uniform, suggesting that the drawing was created by another artist in the circle of Watteau.
