BARON, Bernard
(b. 1696, Paris, d. 1762, London)

The Italian Comedians

c. 1740
National Gallery of Art, Washington

Baron's print was made after the painting by Antoine Watteau. The print was included in the Recueil Julienne, the compendium of prints after Watteau's work. In fact it was Baron's print that gave The Italian Comedians its title.
