Leading the same charmed life depicted in his paintings of the aristocracy in pre-Revolutionary France, Jean-Honoré Fragonard's name is synonymous with the French Rococo. Focusing on frivolity and the transient nature of beauty and pleasure, the Rococo under Fragonard is a perfectly preserved era.
Achieving commercial success for much of his life, with no shortage of A-list patrons, Fragonard's career was sadly put on hold by the Revolution. One of the most prolific painters of all time, his work remains a testament to the hedonistic legacy of the ancién-regime.
