The Country Dance

Copy after Antoine Watteau French

Not on view

Around 1715, Watteau painted his pendants The Cascade (private collection) and The Country Dance (Huntington Library and Museum, Pasadena) in a rectangular format, but by the mid-1780s both had been cut down to make roundels. Sometime before the 1820s, an unknown painter created these copies of Watteau’s originals.
