Boucher was an artist of incomparable virtuosity and industry with a preference for mythological and pastoral subjects. Here he shows a beautifully dressed shepherd and shepherdess. The simplicity of the subject belies the complexity of the composition, which is organized around a series of intersecting diagonals. The canvas, much admired at the Salon of 1753, was one of a pair of overdoors from Bellevue, a château belonging to Madame de Pompadour, mistress of Louis XV.
