Biography of Jean Antoine Watteau:

1684 - Jean Antoine Watteau, born on the 10th of October in Flemish town of Valenciennes, which had just been annexed by the French king Louis XIV. Jean Antoine Watteau was a French painter whose brief career spurred the revival of interest in colour and movement (in the tradition of Correggio and Rubens), and revitalized the waning Baroque idiom, which eventually became known as Rococo.

1703 - Jean Antoine Watteau was employed as an assistant by the painter Claude Gillot, whose work represented a reaction against the turgid official art of Louis XIV's reign. 1709 - Jean Antoine Watteau tried to obtain the Prix de Rome and was rejected by the Academy.

1712 - Jean Antoine Watteau tried again and was considered so good that, rather than receiving the one-year stay in Rome for which Jean Antoine Watteau had applied, Jean Antoine Watteau was accepted as a full member of the Academy.
