Pierre Antoine Baudouin
(French, 1723 - 1769)
This person is associated with: Rococo
French Rococo painter. He was the son-in-law of François Boucher, whose patronage helped him to enter in the French Academy on 20 August 1763 as a miniature painter. His reception piece was Phryne before the Areopagus.

Like Boucher, Baudouin mostly painted libertine subjects, with a strong eroticism at the time. Therefore, his works were numerously engraved until the end of the century. On the 1763 Salon, the Archbishop of Paris demanded the withdrawal of his work entitled A Priest Catechizing Young Girls for blasphemy.
