François Boucher was one of the most highly acclaimed French painters in all of art history. Boucher was the teacher of the respected painter David, as well as a whole generation of popular French painters.

Marquise de Pompadeur

Art historians have credited Boucher at reinventing pastoral scenes, and that he created the imagery of shepherds and shepherdesses as sentimental lovers. His approach was said to have dominated French painting until the emergence of Neoclassicism. Though his ideas were fresh and inventive, Boucher still met with some criticism in his lifetime. However, Boucher still managed to create work for both the collectors and for the art market while retaining the prestige that he gained as a history painter.
