When Louis XIV died, stiff, formal subjects disappeared and everything became an excuse for seductive gallantries. Throughout the reign of Louis XV, the tapestry makers gave free rein to their imagination. Boucher excelled in gallant scenes. This scene is remarkable for the variety and fineness of its colors and the elegance of its details, is an exquisite illustration of his style. This tapestry by Boucher, the king`s artist and protege of Madame de Pompadour, expresses this new style.
