Excerpt from Antoine Watteau (1684-1721)

This brief study does not pretend to analyse the deepest secrets of Antoine Watteau's art, soul, and genius. My strict duty as a biographer obliges me to omit none of the chief circum stances of the artist's life - none, at any rate, which help to throw any light on his work, or to define its meaning and conditions. The Object and the format of this series compel me to restrict myself to generalities. It is, more over, impossible to display any brilliant erudi tion in relating the story of so well-known an existence, which has been told in many previous books with abundant documentary evidence,and especially in the Memoir of the Comte de Caylus, a work which leaves no room for further research. I have therefore confined myself to summarising the most significant features of Watteau's life° but this, together with the analysis of his works and technique, takes up the greater part of my book.
