Boucher executed this painting for Madame de Pompadour, the powerful, official mistress of Louis XV and Boucher’s most significant patron from 1747 until her death in 1764. It originally decorated the bathing apartments (a luxurious suite of three rooms) in Pompadour’s Château de Bellevue. The construction of her château prompted many of the most important commissions of Rococo painting and sculpture. For a subject that became synonymous with both Boucher and Pompadour, the artist devised a summary of the movement’s key features: overt theatricality, voluptuous flesh, and an asymmetrical unfurling of luxurious furniture, fabric, flowers, and pearls.
