He revitalized the waning Baroque style, and indeed moved it to the less severe, more naturalistic, less formally classical Rococo. Watteau is credited with inventing the genre of fêtes galantes: scenes of bucolic and idyllic charm, suffused with an air of theatricality. Some of his best known subjects were drawn from the world of Italian comedy and Ballet. In the final scenes of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey, after his journey thorugh the Star Gate, astronaut David Bowman finds himself in a stark room resembling a hotel, with several reproductions of Watteau paintings on the walls. Watteau's work was also a key visual reference for Kubrick's later film Barry Lyndon. The French film Ce que mes yeux ont vu (What my eyes saw; 2007) by Jean-Pierre Marielle, starring Sylvie Testud and Jean-Pierre Marielle, depicts a fictional academic investigation of Watteau's works. In the plot, Watteau supposedly had a secret love relation with Comédie-Française actress Charlotte Desmares. In the Nintendo 3DS art-training software, New Art Academy, one of its minor lessons (known as Minilessons) featured an actual three-coloured pencil sketch by Watteau, in which the software was using it as an example of the aux trois crayons art technique.
