A brilliant depiction of the sad clown by Antoine Watteau (1684-1721). Pierrot (in white) was a famous in theater and was the subject of many pranks. He always tried to conquer the beautiful Columbine, but she always fell in love with Harlequin. Pierrot originated in the Italian Commedia dell'Arte. He is usually the naive character that people make fun of and he is dressed in white. #Art #Artwork #ArtHistory #Painting #Rococo #Pierrot #Comedy #Theater #CommediadellArte #Italian #French #Watteau #SadClown #Clown #Portrait #Louvre #Paris #Museum
