REMARKS

Fig 2

Jean-Baptiste Pater, Baigneuses, oil on canvas, 102 x 143 cm. Formerly Potsdam, Neues Palais (destroyed ).


The composition is not after Watteau but, rather, after Pater. It is after a well-known, much larger painting that was formerly at the Neues Palais in Potsdam, but which was destroyed in World War II.
