Notes

Summary:
This painting depicts a troubadour, a singing poet associated with medieval French royal courts. From 1800 to 1850, there was a renewed interest in the medieval world, including the "Gothic Troubadour" style, based loosely upon French art and architecture from the Middle Ages. The painting also relates to the revived popularity of the great French Rococo painter Jean-Antoine Watteau (1684-1721). Here Daumier, like Watteau, explored the lost golden age of chivalry and courtly love. The subdued, almost faded colors and the troubadour's mandolin reinforce this poetic, melancholic mood.
