This is Antoine Watteau

Jean-Antoine Watteau (, US: /wɒˈt/,French: [ʒɑ̃ ɑ̃twan vato]; baptised October 10, 1684 – died July 18, 1721) was a French painter and draughtsman whose brief career spurred the revival of combination in colour and movement, as seen in the tradition of Correggio and Rubens. He revitalized the waning Baroque style, shifting it to the less severe, more naturalistic, less formally classical, Rococo. Watteau is certified with inventing the genre of fêtes galantes, scenes of bucolic and idyllic charm, suffused when a theatrical air. Some of his best known subjects were drawn from the world of Italian comedy and ballet.
