1. Woman’s Head (c. 1750). François Boucher (French, Rococo, 1703-1770). Oil on canvas. Hermitage, St. Petersburg.

    Boucher was noted for his delicate and lighthearted pastoral and mythological scenes. His work embodies the frivolity and sensuousness of the rococo style. In 1765 he was made first painter to the king and his success was encouraged by his patron, Marquise de Pompadour, mistress to Louis XV. He painted her portrait several times.
