Hidden Lives Of Works Of Art

Watteau
Season 1 Episode 4 FOXTEL Arts January 5, 2016

For two days, the Louvre Museum invited the world's leading experts to come and scrutinise "their Watteaus", a splendid collection, the masterpieces of which are the "Pilgrimage to Cythera" and the "Gilles".

Antoine Watteau (1684-1721) was one of the most prominent masters of the French school. But he is also the subject of a paradox. The artist of the "fetes galantes" achieved recognition during his lifetime, and yet all his major works are surrounded in mystery, and raise unanswered questions as to their origins, meanings and history.
