IB Critique of Watteau

A few of you were absent when we did the critique last Tuesday.  If you did, here are the resources you need to make up the assignment:

Background on the artist:   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Antoine_Watteau

Background on the art movement he belonged to:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rococo

And finally the image I want you to critique:

The Embarkation for Cythera (or, The Departure from Cythera), by Jean-Antoine Watteau, France, 1717, oil on canvas

Watteau, Embarkation for Cythera, 1717

The critique is a formative grade.
