Baudouin, Pierre-Antoine (1723-1769)

 

Frenchman Pierre-Antoine Baudouin (1723-1769) was a pupil and imitator of of his brother-in-law François Boucher. Baudouin executed idyllic and erotic subjects. His 'La Cueilette des cerises' or the 'Cherry pickers' inspired François Boucher's large painting found at Kenwood in England. It was one of the most famous decorations on Chinese export porcelain, made for the European market around 1775.
