So popular and persuasive was Watteau’s vision that it was immediately adapted for various decorative purposes and his designs were applied to products of all kinds. There has probably never been a moment since his death in 1721 when some distant echo of his inspiration was not slapped onto merchandise and the process continues to this day.
