Jean-Antoine Watteau was born in Valenciennes, in the north of France. During his childhood and adolescence, the artist is described as very withdrawn, reasons for this could be his father's bellicosity, violence and frequent drinking. He also suffered from consumption at an early age. His artistic vocation was also clear at an early age. At the age of ten he studied under Jacques-Albert Gérin, a painter who was highly regarded in Valenciennes.

In Paris, he met Flemish artists and made ends meet by making copies of religious paintings, including those by Dutch artist Gérard Dou. Watteau made the acquaintance of the decoration painter Claude Gillot, especially his work as an interior decorator for theatres awakened his enthusiasm for the theatre scene, for mythology and for chic life. The collaboration was short and Watteau switched to another decoration painter, Claude Audran III, for whom he made wall decorations. In 1709 he applied for a scholarship to the Prix de Rome, but only came second. He also applied to the Paris Academy, but was not accepted until years later, because his admission picture ("Embarkation to Kythera") was so long in coming. Shortly before his death, Watteau painted one of his greatest works, "The Shop Sign of the Art Dealer Edme Gersaint", which can be seen today in Berlin at Charlottenburg Palace. The painting is supposed to be an advertisement for an art shop and shows customers and sellers in their daily sales activities. Throughout his life Watteau never had wealthy patrons, his buyers were mostly middle-class. Antoine Watteau's state of health is also disastrous. In London he visits one of the most respected doctors of the time and admirer of his work, but the situation does not improve. A few months after his return to Paris he dies at the age of 36, presumably of tuberculosis. On his deathbed, Watteau, clutching a brush, is said to have drawn paintings in the air.

Despite his short life, he was able to exert a considerable influence on art; he is considered the inventor of the pictorial genre of the "Fete galante". Characteristic are idyllic, rural scenes and theatricality, often he oriented himself towards Italian comedy and ballet. Through this style he influenced not only painting, but also ornamental art, as well as poetry, music and of course theatre - far more than other creators of the 18th century. Even a dress form is "dedicated" to him, because it was so characteristic in his paintings, the shoulders of the dress must fall down in big folds. After his death his influence remained, but in England during the Regency period and only later in France and Russia. In the 20th century Watteau revived, associations dedicated to him were created and exhibitions were held in Paris, Berlin and the USA. The Watteau Centre has existed in his home town since 2000. © Meisterdrucke
