Jean Honore Fragonard - Paintings


Jean-Honoré Fragonard, a French delineator of manners, was one of the most important painters of Rococo along with Antoine Watteau and François Boucher.
Born on April 05, 1732 in Grasse, Provence.
Died on August 22, 1806 in Paris.
After his apprenticeship with Jean Simeon Chardin and Francois Boucher, Jean-Honoré Fragonard was awarded the Prix de Rome in 1752. He then studied at the French Academy in Rome for five years. Alongside illusionist designed landscapes and portraits, he especially painted erotic scenes appearing too revealing when detached from the previous mythological ties with nobility. Influenced by Henri Rousseau's theories, from 1785, Fragonard changed towards the much more rigorous style of Classicism.
