Synopsis: A comprehensive survey of French genre painting of the 18th century, from Watteau's "fetes galantes" to Boilly's paintings of modern Parisian life. Showcasing 113 works, the volume illustrates the variety and the vitality of genre painting throughout the period. Leading English, German, French and American scholars shed light on the development of genre painting, its interpretation, its collectors and its enormous appeal. Here are gathered together masterpieces by such eminent artists as Watteau, Lancret, de Troy, Chardin, Boucher, Greuze, Fragonard, Robert and Boilly. The wide range of their featured works encompasses military scenes, theatrical subjects, hunt pictures, pastorals, domestic life, moral pictures, fishwife subjects, paintings for the boudoir, and panoramas of the Enlightenment in landscapes and townscapes. Each work is thoroughly catalogued, and an appendix lists all genre paintings shown in the 18-century Salons.

From the Publisher: This catalogue accompanies an exhibition that will appear at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa from June 6 to September 7, 2003. It then travels to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., from October 12, 2003, to January 11, 2004, and to the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin from February 8 to May 9, 2004. Published in association with the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
