BOUCHER (François)
Painter, skilled artist, prolific and talented aquafortist, he created porcelain settings, tapestries as well as theatrical sets. His work established the trend for the French rococo painting from the start to mid 18th Century. He painted graceful pastoral and mythological scenes. He later developed more sensuous works, describing an idyllic world. His style fell from favour with the arrival of neo-classicism.
