Product Description

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

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