This is an original 1895 halftone print of "Divertissement champêtre ("Das Liebesfest,") by Jean Antoine Watteau.

The Fête champêtre was a prominent form of social entertainment (similar to a garden party) during the 18th century. It usually included entire orchestras hidden within the trees and guests often dressed in very fancy attire.

Watteau studied under Claude Gillot and Audran, as well as others. Later, he was commissioned to paint scenery for the Paris Opera.
