Heavily influenced by Francois Boucher’s work, Jean-Baptiste Marie Huet (1745-1811) was a noted French artist who painted in the rococo style. The vast body of his work was pastoral scenes of daily life in the late 18th century. He was also known to turn many of his paintings into engravings of which he was also renowned for. Here, he portrays a couple dancing merrily in the afternoon sun. The view is through a window, where a couple on the right converse with one another on the sill. The border is equally elaborate, with a large curtain hanging down the sides of the window and lots of ornamentation along the bottom. This tapestry is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging.
