Watteau_"The Love Song"

Antoine Watteau's painting is in the Rococo style. The "Pink Man" entertains his friend. Like the person who drives a pink Chevrolet or Cadilac the "Pink Man" does not take life serious. He wants to have fun.

 

Off with Their Heads

This style lost favor with a tremendous rush of hatred after the French Revolution. An attempt to paint “Rococo Style” in public could lead to a death sentence and loss of your head to the guillotine. [A French head-chopping machine]

 

I love the French,This painting is found in National Gallery, London
