The Four Seasons: Summer

19th century

About

Originally painted for Louis XV's mistress Madame de Pompadour, this sensuous work of voluptuous bathing nudes is a copy of Boucher's "The Four Seasons: Summer." The original was painted in 1755, and is now part of the Frick Collection in New York. Born in Paris, the son of a lace designer Nicolas Boucher, François Boucher was perhaps the most celebrated decorative artist of the 18th century, with most of his work reflecting the Rococo style. Reflecting inspiration gained from the artists Watteau & Rubens, Boucher's early work celebrates the idyllic & tranquil, portraying nature & landscape with great élan. However, his art typically forgoes traditional rural innocence to portray scenes with a definitive style of eroticism, & his mythological scenes are passionate & amorous rather than traditionally epic. Francois Boucher died on May 30, 1770 in Paris, France. His name had become synonymous with the French Rococo style, leading the Goncourt brothers to write: "Boucher is one of those men who represent the taste of a century, who express, personify & embody it."
