Description

The oil on canvas paintings in this set of five, each held within an ornately carved giltwood frame, are executed in the manner of Andien de Clermont and Jean-Honoré Fragonard, two preeminent exponents of the Rococo in French art during the 18th Century.

Each large painting, of elongated portrait form, follows the same tiered scheme. The composition is arranged hierarchically within an abstracted architectural and pastoral setting: at the bottom is a bundle of vegetation and flowers topped by twin white doves; above this is a grouping of grisaille cherubim, flanked, like the bundle below, by framing cypress trees. Above the cherubim is a scene of courtly love, a fête galante, contained within a circular floral cartouche. This cartouche is surmounted by a series of architectural elements draped with floral garlands and nestled with birds and other figures. The entire composition of each painting is entirely playful, as is characteristic of the Rococo style. The colour palette employed ranges from grisaille to the pastel shades typical of the Rococo, and the manner of execution is delicate and fine.
