Watteau: Tea Time in the Park / Teestunde im Park

Wikipedia says: "Jean-Antoine Watteau (* 10. Oktober 1684 in Valenciennes; † 18. Juli 1721 in Nogent-sur-Marne) was a French painter whose brief career spurred the revival of interest in colour and movement (in the tradition of Correggio and Rubens). ... Watteau is credited with inventing the genre of fêtes galantes: scenes of bucolic and idyllic charm, suffused with an air of theatricality. " See the whole article: LINK  


Aus Wikipedia: Jean-Antoine Watteau (* 10. Oktober 1684 in Valenciennes; † 18. Juli 1721 in Nogent-sur-Marne) war Maler des französischen Rokoko. Mit seinen „Fêtes galantes“ schuf er zu Beginn des 18. Jahrhunderts eine neue Bildgattung. Mehr dazu hier: LINK

This painting of a gallant party is a copy of the original Watteau painting out of the  Palace Berlin-Charlottenburg. Since centuries they sit there in the park, play music and never had a tea. Can you see how they look yearning for the tea cups? I will serve those elegant party their first tea ever.


Dieses Gemälde ist eine Kopie des Originalbildes aus dem Schloss Berlin-Charlottenburg. Seit Jahrhunderten sitzen die im Park, musizieren und hatten noch nie einen Tee.  Könnt ihr sehen, wie sehnsüchtig sie nach den Tassen gucken? Ich werde dieser eleganten Gesellschaft Tee servieren.

--ooOOoo--

Look, how they are kidding. The lady in the blue dress hides her tea cup and the young man tries to get it. The standing couple look amused.


Schau, wie die rumalbern. Die Dame im blauen Kleid versteckt ihre Tasse und der junge Mann versucht, an die Tasse zu kommen. Das stehende Paar ist amüsiert.

--ooOOoo--

The yellow dressed lady holds her tea cup gracefully while the blue clothed man declaims a poem about tea. The musician looks if some tea is left for him. Only the dog is not interested to get tea. 


Die gelb gekleidete Dame hält graziös ihre Teetasse während der blau gewandete Mann einen Vers auf den Tee deklamiert. Der Musikant schaut, ob noch Tee für ihn übrig ist. Nur der Hund ist nicht am Tee  interessiert.
