Francois Boucher was born in 1703 in Paris, France. Boucher studied at the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture in 1731 and later became a faculty member. He is best known for his rococo style of painting, or ornamental nature and landscape scenes, as well as amorous and ethereal portraits of women. His works can be view at the National Gallery of Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Frick Collection and several others internationally.
The original drawing is by artist François Boucher (French, 1703–1770). The Albertina Museum in Vienna created the Albertina Facsimile in 1923. It was a collection of reproductions of original drawings by Masters from the 15th-18th centuries. 500 of each work chosen for the collection were printed.
