19th Century Oil Painting "The Toilette of Venus" after Francois Boucher

About

This incredible painting dates to the first half of the 19th century. It is a masterful recreation after the original famous work by Francois Boucher, French (1703-1770), currently on exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Per the Met Museum's website: "Madame de Pompadour, mistress of Louis XV, admired Boucher and was his patroness from 1747 until her death in 1764. This famous work was commissioned for the dressing room at Bellevue, her château near Paris. In 1750 she had acted the title role in a play, staged at Versailles, called The Toilet of Venus, and while this is not a portrait, a flattering allusion may have been intended. The bodies of the goddess and her cupids are soft, supple, and blond. The carved and gilded rococo sofa, the silk, velvet, and gold damask drapery, are heavy and elaborate enough for the Victorian era. " It is important to note that the back of the canvas includes Museum stamps "Copy" "Metropolitan Museum of Art" "3 AP 34" "8 JE 34" indicating that this painting was previously owned by the Met and appears to have been on exhibit for a period of 3 months in 1934. Presented with period giltwood frame. Measures: 33.5" x 43.5" including frame.
