Product Description

This is an exceptional Rococo (watercolour), miniature painting on ivory after the original painting by Pierre Antoine Baudouin (1723 – 1769). Boudouin’s original painting was titled, in its exhibition catalogue at the Salon, Le Carquois Epuise. There is another title also associated with this piece.  Baudouin was Francois Boucher’s son in law and is best known for his Rococo watercolor paintings depicting amorous scenes and miniatures.  Le Carquois Epuise was engraved by Nicolas De Launay in the 18th century.

The sides of the 18th century box are decorated with a Greek key motif, which was a popular design in the French decorative arts of this period.
