Description of the painting by Antoine Watteau “Society in the Park”


Antoine Watteau is one of the famous artists, a bright representative of the Rococo style. He is a French artist, so the basis of his work simply cannot be considered without affecting French culture from the late sixteenth to the beginning of the seventeenth century. Watteau’s work included almost everything from painting of the same era to literature or music.

In order for a person to be able to enjoy the art of this artist and a true master of art, it is necessary not only to look at his paintings or read useful information about them, but also to be sufficiently erudite. We are talking about erudition and awareness in any kind of art of the time in which this artist lived and painted his paintings.

A person who wants to taste and imbued with all the magic and beauty of the painting “Society in the Park” should have at least a superficial idea of ​​the nature of the works of Cornel, Fragonard, and Cuperin. Roughly speaking, you need to imbue the spirit of the era of Louis XIV, and then the usual-looking paintings of Watteau will turn into real stories full of feelings, emotions and experiences.

Watteau was able to use his paintings to create a real separate genre, which has traditionally been called "gallant festivities." And one of the most outstanding works, which is a prominent representative of the genre, is the Society in the Park. Connoisseurs and experts who subtly feel such work, I can appreciate it at its true worth. As Oswald Spengler noted, Watteau belongs to the sphere of Bach and Cuperin. Therefore, as already mentioned, for an accurate understanding of the picture and its hidden meanings, it is necessary to study the world and the era in which the artist lived.

But even without an understanding of that time, one can see that Watteau gives importance to colors, color, characters and nature.
