GROUP IN BISCUIT : HUNTING SCENE WITH GALLANT COUPLE, 18TH CENTURY
Group in Bisque Porcelain illustrating a hunting scene with two young hunters accompanied by their dogs and a gallant couple embracing in the shade of a tree. The group rests on a rocky base scattered with vegetation. Louis XV period, rocaille.
The hunting scene is here used as a pretext to illustrate an intimate scene, in which the two characters are depicted in a posture conducive to love and seduction. The theme of the gallant couple whose attitudes are imitated by the animals around them - in this case dogs - is a constant in Rococo art.
