"The Setting of the Sun"

François Boucher - Oil On Canvas - 318 x 261 cm - 1752 - (Wallace Collection (London, United Kingdom))

The Setting of the Sun is a 1752 oil on canvas painting by François Boucher.
It and its pair The Rising of the Sun were both private commissions for Madame de Pompadour as full-scale models for the Gobelins Manufactory.
They now hang in the Wallace Collection in London.
Representing the rhythm of the day, Boucher creates an integrated pairing layered with allegory and symbolism.
In The Setting of the Sun, the god Apollo returns to his mother's arms, bringing dusk along with him, represented by muted pinks, browns, and creams.
The foregrounds of both canvases are populated by the nude bodies of nymphs and naiads, overlapping with one another to create a series of arabesque curves that are echoed in the forms of the waves.
The meeting of sky and sea affirms the mythological setting of Boucher's paintings.
These mythological scenes of harmonious pastels, beautiful nude bodies and gauzy textures exemplify the visual elegance of the Rococo aesthetic
their decorative nature is further enhanced by their function as designs for tapestries, which would have served to adorn and complement a luxurious and fashionable home.
