Explore the paintings

The costumes recall those in fashion in the 1640s and 1650s, and this painting may have been executed at about that time.

The painting includes a view of a formal garden, with its geometric plantings, before which a group is being entertained in a manner that anticipates the 18th-century 'fête galante', or 'courtship party' genre of Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684 - 1721).
