Jean-Antoine Watteau is attributed to extending the bounds of the 18th . Watteau wholeheartedly embraced the characters of the Italian theater, an influence that would last throughout his short career.

Jean-Antoine Watteau is attributed to extending the bounds of the 18th century French-born Rococo at period beyond architecture, furniture and sculpture and into painting. In comparison to other movements the Rococo was short lived, perhaps due to Watteau's untimely death at the age of 36, just as his career was flourishing. Watteau's artistic content could be summarized by two major influences: his love for the theater and his fascination of the Rococo styling and design.
