Plate 131 to 'L'Oeuvre d'Antoine Watteau Peintre du Roy', also known as the 'Recueil Jullienne' after Jean de Jullienne (1686 - 1766), a Parisian collector and patron of the arts who owned some 450 drawings by Watteau which he had engraved after the artist's early death. It was largely through this collection of engravings that Watteau's reputation was spread in the years following his death.
