"Jeune Fille", By ~ Francois Boucher ~ 1703 - 1770.

François Boucher was born in the autumn of 1703, Rue de la Verrerie, 11th district of Paris, into the family of a modest painter and designer, Nicolas.
From his father Boucher received a broad artistic training and education, however Nicolas soon realized that his son would need the supervision of a more skilled artist to fully master his talents. Thus in 1720, when Boucher turned seventeen, he entered the studio of François Lemoyne, a rising figure in art and soon to be a lead promoter of the Rococo genre.
