Watteau's inspiration for this piece is the mournful character of Gilles, or Pierrot in French, from the Italian improvisational Commedia Dell'Arte. Painted circa 1718-1719, Gilles is an great example of Watteau's Rococo style, which was expressed through his use of movement and colour. This painting is on display at the Louvre in Paris.
