Pilgrimage to the Island of Cythera

Jean-Antoine Watteau, 1717

We have just started to delve into the artistic period known as the Rococo style in my Art History class. Watteau was a major artist of this period. He painted Pilgrimage to the Island of Cythera for his admission into the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. This painting fell under a completely new category of artistic subject matter known as fĂȘte galante. It depicts a fantastic scene on a mythical island where aristocratic couples travel through the hills, accompanied by putti or cherubs. I was definitely intrigued by this magical painting, like much of 18th century Europe had been when it was first painted.
