Jean-Baptiste Greuze, French (1725-1805) After the great success at The Salon of 1755, Greuze went on to become a famous painter of genre scenes. Labelled by Diderot as 'Morality in paint", his sentimental works later gave way to portraits of beautiful, often semi-nude, young woman. His paintings were often reproduced on Royal Vienna porcelain plates. The following are some fine examples.
