Boy with a Carrot Made 1738 France. FranAois Boucher, whose art epitomized the light-hearted sensuality of the Rococo

Boy with a Carrot Made 1738 France. FranAois Boucher, whose art epitomized the light-hearted sensuality of the Rococo style, was the most famous painter and decorator during the reign of Louis XV (r. 1715n74), and was championed by Madame de Pompadour, the kingis powerful mistress. Boucher seldom ventured from major paintings and decorative ensembles to do finished, independent works on paper. Nor did he pursue portraiture, apart from his depictions of royal patrons and members of his family. This engaging and fresh portrait of a boy, perhaps a studio apprentice, may well be one of Boucheris first, and finest, forays into pastel drawing. With this adaptable and newly fashioned medium, Rococo artists were able to imbue their images with a spirited directness and sense of life. Here Boucher captured the dimple-cheeked lad just as he seems to turn, lips parted as if to speak. The youthis attentive gaze, tousled hair, and delicately elegant city clothes herald the artistis suave later manner as court painter. The same young model, again holding a carrot, appears in at least two paintings of pastoral subjects by Boucher.. Pastel on buff laid paper. Francois Boucher
