fêtes galantes (<paintings by subject type>, paintings (visual works), ... Visual and Verbal Communication (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Category of paintings derived from a description by the French Academy in 1717 of Antoine Watteau's variations of the "fête champêtre" genre. Fête champêtre ("rural festival") paintings portray costumed figures in an idealized, poetic setting, while fête galante ("courtship party") paintings are usually small in scale, and show groups of aristocratic men and women in pastoral settings engaged in amorous play.

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Een schildergenre dat is afgeleid van de beschrijving die de Franse Academie in 1717 gaf van de variaties van Antoine Watteau op het genre 'fête champêtre' (plattelandsfeest). Op schilderijen in het laatstgenoemde genre worden gekostumeerde figuren afgebeeld in een geïdealiseerd, poëtisch landschap, terwijl het bij fête galante (feest van de verleiding) gaat om doorgaans kleinschalige afbeeldingen van groepen aristocratische mannen en vrouwen die in een pastorale omgeving het liefdesspel bedrijven.
