These pleasant, fresh and spontaneous compositions were engraved by Péquégnot after Boucher's work. The artist, wishing to suggest a drawing, used the technique of soft varnish to reproduce on copper the graphic effects of pencil on paper. These prints are usually printed with a reddish-brown sepia ink to approximate the visual warmth of the sanguine drawing.
François Boucher had a brilliant career, received all the honours, received incessant royal commissions and enjoyed the friendship of many amateurs. However, his elegant art no longer seduces from the 1760 Salon. Empress Eugénie by taste revisited François Boucher's art and put it back in the spotlight in the minds of art critics.
Butcher's art does not seek to move, but to capture the beauty that flourishes. He is the painter of happiness tinged with refined sensuality. A landscape designer full of fantasy and charm, a great decorator, he is the most prolific ornamentalist of his generation.
