About the Artist

Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732–1806) was a prolific painter and draftsman, and is considered to be one of the most important French painters of the second half of the 18th century. Over four decades, he produced many brilliantly realized easel paintings, like The Swing (1767), and large-scale decorative works, like Progress of Love (1771–1772). These paintings marked Fragonard as a brilliant painter, but his apparently whimsical temperament and independent ways meant that he never realized the conventional rewards his talent deserved.
