The Embarkation for Cythera by Jean-Antoine Watteau - Famous Art - Handmade Oil Painting on Canvas


The Embarkation for Cythera is a light and joyful painting by the French artist Jean-Antoine Watteau. There are two paintings of the same subject, but this one is the first and the more popular. It depicts the party or celebration called fete galante, which was enjoyed starting right after the death of Louis XIV. This was the period of peace, pleasure and love in France. These feelings are well-invoked in the painting through the use of wispy and light brushstrokes, the beautiful landscape, the happy people as subjects, and cupids flying around.
