Boucher born in París, was educated in a decorator surronding at the head of which we could find Lemoyne. It was him who introduced Boucher to mythologic subjets and to the world of nudes. Boucher is a lover of female sensuality, beautiful women and exquisit atmosphere.
His great protector is madame de Pompadour, Luis XV's lover, to who he was a drawing teacher. Boucher was named paintor of the king. From this moment on he will start to sufer great criticisms on behalf of the illustrators. According to them, art should be didactic and shouldn't take pleasure in frivolities. A taste for Neoclasicism began to impose itself.
