Nicolas Lancret
 
 
 
Nicolas Lancret, (born January 22, 1690, Paris, France—died September 14, 1743, Paris), French genre painter whose brilliant depictions of fêtes galantes, or scenes of courtly amusements in Arcadian settings, reflected the society of his time.

Although traditionally regarded as a follower of Antoine Watteau, Lancret was a prolific and inventive genre painter in his own right. He studied with Watteau’s master Claude Gillot and probably met Watteau in 1712. He was received into the Royal Academy in 1719 as a painter of fêtes galantes. Much admired as a decorative painter, Lancret executed numerous commissions for the great patrons of the day, including Louis XV and Frederick II. Although based in Watteau’s style, Lancret’s work is characterized by a more vivid palette, more varied genre themes, and a detailed and lively narrative sense.
