A woman dressed in white sits in front of a sculpture of a river nymph. An array of servants, friends, admirers and children spread out on either side of her. In the background the outlines of buildings suggest that the painting is set outside of a town in a country park. This idyllic landscape is one of a pair of paintings by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Pater (1695–1736) in the collection at Kenwood. They are part of the French Rococo movement which attempted to replace the grandeur of the Baroque period with a more playful, extravagant style.
