Filter list according to painting color palette:
 
Francois Boucher was born in Paris , as the son of decorator Nicolas Boucher. François Boucher was perhaps the most celebrated decorative artist of the 18th Century, with most of his work reflecting the Rococo style. At 17, Boucher was apprenticed by his father to François Lemoyne, however after only 3 months he went to work for the engraver Jean-François Cars. Within 3 years Boucher had already won the elite Grand Prix de Rome, although he did not take up the consequential opportunity to study in Italy until 4 years later. On his return from studying in Italy in 1731, he was admitted to the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture as a historical painter, and became a faculty member in 1734.With much of his work reflecting inspiration gained from artists Watteau and Rubens, Boucher's early work celebrates the idyllic and tranquil, portraying nature and landscape with great élan.

His name had become synonymous with the French Rococo style, along with that of his patron, Madame de Pompadour,
