Considers one specific painting by French painter Antoine Watteau (1683-1721): The Embarkation for Cythera. According to the author, the painting evokes "far more than a mere pleasure-party of pastoral idyll; it depicts the evolution of an eternal emotion, and shows us its successive phases, like the progress and fulfiment [sic] of a life." Includes a folded tipped-in color plate of the painting.
