Top Ten Paintings by Jean-Antoine Watteau

Jean-Antoine Watteau

        Jean-Antoine Watteau was born on October 10, 1684 in the Flemish city of Valenciennes, which had just been annexed by the French king Louis XIV. His father was a master tiler. Showing an early interest in painting, he was apprenticed to Jacques-Albert Gérin, a local painter. Having little to learn from Gérin, Watteau left for Paris in about 1702. There he found employment in a workshop at Pont Notre-Dame, making copies of popular genre paintings in the Flemish-Dutch tradition.
