Huge Fine Reclining Venus and Cupid, Continental 18th Century
Circle of François Boucher (1703-1770)

Huge 18th century The Sleep of Venus and Cupid, oil on canvas.  Superb depiction of the nude Goddess Venus as she rests with Cupid surrounded by sumptuous drapery.  Painted to a huge scale in 1760 as per presentation label, the work was meant to impress which it certainly delivers.  The handling and rendering are sophisticated and even though the label attributes the work to Francois Boucher’s School, Boucher’s circle is most likely.  Note the Cupid which has been particularly well painted.  Housed in a heavy and solid frame and ready to hang.

Restored condition with scattered retouching, overpainting, and repair.   

Measurements: Height 138cm, Width 114cm framed (Height 54.25”, Width 45” framed)

François Boucher (Paris 1703-1770) was one of the foremost 18th century Rococo painters specialising in classical, allegorical and pastoral scenes.  Pastel pinks and blues were dominant although he is known to have used other pallets late in her career.  Having become particularly famous he was perhaps one of the most notorious and gifted 18th century artists and was thus recognised via commissions by royalty and his Royal Academy membership status.
