Boucher was a French painter, draughtsman, and engraver who worked in the Rococo style. His works were characterised of idyllic classical subjects, decorative mythological scenes, and pastoral landscapes illustrated in a palette of blues and pinks and voluptuous figures. His style and designs influenced European decorative arts, from painting to porcelain to tapestry. At a young age, he completed the engravings for the French painter, Jean-Antoine Watteau. Boucher studied in France and Italy, and was accepted to the Academie de peinture et de sculpture in 1731. Thereafter, he became a fashionable portrait painter for women of the social elite, including obtaining his patroness, Madame de Pompadour, and was appointed first painter to King Louis XV in 1765.
