Jardin du Luxembourg, Paris

With the posting of the last of Paul Verlaine’s Fêtes galantes two days ago my tribute to Jean-Antoine Watteau is nearing its end. It has been a very rewarding journey for me and it seems to have enjoyed some popularity with my very exclusive readership as well. Watteau’s oeuvre and most particularly his drawings, which I have barely touched upon, is too extensive and too delightful to neglect indefinitely and I shall surely return to it in future, as I will to Verlaine’s exquisite verse.
