About The Artist:

J.J. Dubert was a French painter active in the 19th century. Little is known about his life or career. Dubert's subjects include aristocratic men and women in pastoral settings. His choice of subject matter and painting style are consistent with earlier Rococo models.

This work is an example of a fête galante ("courtship party") painting. It depicts upperclass women, men, and children at leisure. The figures in the foreground are occupied by a musician, while those in the background, lounge comfortably in the grass. The fête galante, popularized by Rococo artist, Jean-Antoine Watteau, allows the painter to render both the natural world and its earthly pleasures. Here, the rigorous geometric pattern of the floor and columns, is masterfully juxtaposed with organic elements and the candy-colored fabrics of the womens' garments.
