Antoine Watteau was the second of four sons born to Jean-Philippe Watteau (1660–1726) and his wife Michelle Lardenois (1653–1728). At the age of ten he became an apprentice in the hometown of the painter Jacques-Albert Gérin.

After leaving for Paris around 1702 to earn a living, he initially worked for a painting merchant until he met Claude Gillot, who took him as a student and from whom he inherited his passion for plays. . However, Watteau only worked for Gillot for a short time. From there he went to the decorative painter Claude Audran III, director of the Galerie du Luxembourg, in whose name he painted numerous wall decorations, the so-called panneaux, whose lively compositions were preserved only in reproductions by engravings.

VEB Typoart, also VEB Typoart Dresden, was a Dresden-based former GDR-type foundry, which emerged from the nationalization of Schelter & Giesecke Leipzig (1946) and Schriftguß AG in Dresden (1951). The Ludwig Wagner company in Leipzig and the North German foundry also became part of VEB Typoart in 1961.
