Exhibitions-tentoonstellingen: Watteau-extra

Op dit moment zijn er twee tentoonstellingen waar ik wat extra afbeeldingen bij wil laten zien. Een is Watteau in het Teylers museum in Haarlem, nog niet gezien. De andere Goede Hoop in het Rijksmuseum, inmiddels drie keer gezien, volgt later.

At present there are two exhibitions (in the Netherlands) where I want to show some additional images to.  One is  Watteau in the Teylers Museum in Haarlem.The other Good Hope in the Rijksmuseum, now seen three times, will follow.

Watteau is bekend om zijn levendige pastels en frivole schilderijen. Hij heeft een aantal prachtige schetsen gemaakt van zwarte jongens en op zijn schilderijen zijn, als je goed kijkt, zwarte bedienden te zien. In wetenschappelijke literatuur, zoals The Image of the Black in Western Art, worden deze werken uitvoerig behandeld.

Watteau is known for its lively pastels and frivolous paintings. He drew some of the best sketches of black youths. And in his paintings, if you look closely, you can see black servants. In scientific literature, such as The Image of the Black in Western Art, you can read more about Watteau and these works in detail.

 Antoine Watteau 1684-1721.
