From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Embarkation for Cythera is a painting by the French artist Jean-Antoine Watteau, who submitted this work to the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture as his reception piece in 1717. It portrays a fête galante, an amorous celebration enjoyed by the French aristocracy during the Régence. Such romantic themes are reflected in the title; Cythera was thought to be the birthplace of the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite. The painting is now in the Louvre in Paris.Painting: Jean-Antoine Watteau
