Glorieux, Watteau, Paris 2011, pp. 92, 373, note 99, reproduced p. 92, fig. 61 Executed with verve and spontaneity, these two studies of soldiers are, as Margaret Morgan Grasselli has noted, larger in scale and drawn with greater assurance than Watteau's earliest studies, which are still strongly influenced by the style of his teacher, Claude Gillot. 1 Both these figures appear in Watteau's painting, The Bivouac ('Camp volant', Moscow, Pushkin Museum), which was commissioned by the print dealer Pierre Sirois, and almost certainly executed at the beginning of 1710. 2 Jean de Julienne noted that Watteau made a number of studies, from life, of soldiers and their camps during a visit to his native Valenciennes in 1709-10, and it is highly likely that the present sheet dates from that trip. 3 In fact, a recently discovered passport, issued to Watteau on 3 September 1710, which granted him permission to travel to Valenciennes for one month, almost certainly defines much more precisely the moment when he made this and the related drawings. 4 A very comparable sheet of studies of soldiers is in the École des Beaux-Arts, Paris. 5 The two studies on this sheet were engraved, separately, by Jean Audran, and these prints were included as plates 75 and 76 in the seminal two-volume compendium of prints after the drawings of Watteau, Les Figures de differents caractères, which Jean de Jullienne had published between 1726 and 1728. A counterproof of the upper figure, now in a Paris private collection, was formerly in the 'Album Groult,' a volume of more than 500 drawings, most of them by Jean-Baptiste Pater, which was previously in the same collection as the present drawing before it was sold and dismembered in 1941. 1. loc. cit., 1987 2.
