"My dream is to paint a portrait that would not be forgotten in twenty or thirty years." - Francois Boucher



FrancoisBoucher.com is a tribute to Francois Boucher (1703-1770), French painter, noted for his pastoral and mythological scenes, whose work embodies the frivolity and sensuousness of the rococo style.

This site features an art gallery, a bookstore, several links of interest, and a shop.

After his return to France, he created hundreds of paintings, decorative boudoir panels, tapestry designs, theater designs, and book illustrations. [Read more...]
