The history of these paintings -- one of the most powerful evocations of love in the history of art -- is linked with the career of the Comtesse du Barry, the last mistress of Louis XV. For a pleasure pavilion she commissioned from the architect Ledoux in 1771, the countess ordered from Fragonard four canvases depicting "the four ages of love." They are the large canvases flanking the fireplace and to the right, on the adjacent south wall. Together they illustrate a love story such as any of us might have known. Beginning on the south wall, they advance from a flirtatious proposal (a young man springs out to offer a girl a rose), to a furtive meeting at the left (the lover scales the wall of a garden), to consummation or marriage on the other side of the fireplace (the girl crowns her lover with roses), to the calm enjoyment of a happy union (the reading of the love letters). Yet, for all their beauty and passion, Madame du Barry soon returned the canvases to the artist and ordered replacements from another. Were the resemblances between the red-coated lover and Louis XV potentially embarrassing? Did the exuberant canvases seem a little old-fashioned amidst the cool neoclassicism of Ledoux's avant-garde pavilion? For whatever reason, Fragonard was left holding onto his creations for another twenty years. Then, adding seven more canvases, he installed the lot in a cousin's villa in southern France.

'The Swing' is an eighteenth-century masterpiece by Jean-Honoré Fragonard that embodies the spirit of the Rococo artistic style. In this film, Curatorial Assistant Carmen Holdsworth-Delgado is interviewed by Christobel and Niamh about the painting, in which a young lady becomes the centre of attention, objectification, fantasy and desire. Though at first glance it may appear to be a scene of playful recreation, look closely for the two male characters in the painting; the composition suggests both scandalous romantic liaisons and voyeuristic intentions. Fragonard explores the social mores and painterly traditions of the age whilst inviting the viewer to become part of the seduction. Part of the 'Secrets of the Wallace' podcast series. Hello I'm Chistobel and I'm Niamh and today we are going to be discussing decadence, agency and ambiguity in Jean-Honoré Fragonard's best known painting, The Swing. Here to give us some insider knowledge is Curatorial Assistant Carmen Holdsworth-Delgado. Could you give us some information about how The Swing came into being? A poet's accounts has it that the history painter Doyen was approached by an 'unnamed person' or gentleman of the court, who wanted to commission him to paint a picture of his mistress on a swing, with him in the bushes hiding, and being pushed by a bishop. He specifically said the lady on the swing should be showing her ankles and more besides, if you want to enliven the picture further. Doyen was a little bit scandalised by this and he suggested that instead Fragonard take over the commission. This painting was made in 1767. How does Fragonard undercut the etiquette of French eighteenth-century society? Well French eighteenth-century society, at this time, is well known for being quite libertine. But they still had quite strict rules and regulations and one of those was that men were allowed mistresses. Women possibly could have a fancy man if they wanted, however they first had to provide a male heir to their husband and be very discreet about it. So Fragonard was not undercutting society but just putting it overtly out there what everyone knew to be happening at the time. To what extent do you think the lady is situated as the object of desire versus the instigator of romantic intrigue? That's a really good question, I think Fragonard leaves that completely open to us. It is very ambiguous and it's a love triangle, even the composition shows us that. The lady is sat on the Swing precariously balanced between two people. Women at the time did not have much power in terms of money and lands (that went from father to husband if there was any). But they did have influence and they had to use their wiles and natural beauty to gain a position in Court. So she might hold the power and beauty at the moment, but the precarious swing position shows us that it might not last. How does Fragonard utilise the Rococo artistic styles of the age? So firstly, Fragonard has created quite a small picture. In the Rococo, rooms became smaller, cosier and more multifunctional. These were conversational pieces allowing people to come up close to. It also shows a lovely lady in a beautiful pink dress. The Rococo was well-known for its excessive use of textiles and people at this time would have known other society portraits, maybe even of Boucher's Madame de Pompadour in a similar dress. These portraits were different as the lady was static rather than in full fluid movement and not showing more than her shoe. Lastly it's quite normal for ladies to be shown with their favourite pet, Madame de Pompadour is shown with her faithful and adoring dog. However, the dog in the Swing is jumping up and excited, showing that all is not well in this relationship. Thanks for watching. If you're interested in seeing The Swing in person then come down to the Wallace Collection and look out for more podcasts online.

Jean Honore Fragonard: A collection of 64 paintings (HD) Description: Born in the small city of Grasse, Jean-Honoré Fragonard moved to Paris with his family in 1738. While still in his teens, he apprenticed to Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin for just six months and then worked in François Boucher's studio. He won the Prix de Rome in 1752, then spent three preparatory years under Carle Vanloo before studying at the Académie de France in Rome from 1756 to 1761. Fragonard also drew landscapes with Hubert Robert and traveled to southern Italy and Venice. Fragonard's submission to the Salon of 1765 earned him associate academy membership, yet he opted out of an official career of history painting. Preferring to make lighthearted, erotic pictures for private clients, he only exhibited at the Salon twice. Life and paint seen through his lightning brush were delicious; his cheerful canvases reinvigorated the Rococo style. He painted mythology, gallantry, landscape, and portraiture and drew voraciously in wide-ranging media, often signing his works "Frago." The French Revolution ended Fragonard's career and made him a pauper. Admiring his work, the Neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David attempted to assist by making him curator of the future Musée du Louvre. Unable to adapt to the new style of painting, however, Fragonard died forgotten in Napoleon's France. Feel free to subscribe!

Fragonard in love, Musée du Luxembourg. One of the best exhibitions I have ever visited...Jean-Honore Fragonard's style reveals a taste for what is light-hearted and elegant. He specialized in dreamy landscapes and portraiture. His rich, velvety application of paint and skillful depiction of his subjects possess a freshness and liveliness unequaled in the work of any of his contemporaries. Well represented in the Louvre, the Wallace Collection in London, and the Frick Collection and the Metropolitan Museum in New York City, his work can also be seen in the museums of Washington, D.C., Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, and St. Louis.

Fragonard in love, Musée du Luxembourg. One of the best exhibitions I have ever visited...Celebrated as one of the 18th century’s most imaginative artists, Jean-Honoré Fragonard by name alone conjures up images of love and play, underscored with gently erotic themes. Fragonard’s scenes were pretty scandalous for his era, but the artist was essentially just interested in the frank expression of emotion, where courting lead to sensual encounters. The exhibition highlights Fragonard’s unique ability to capture a fleeting moment, his virtuosity as a painter, his mastery of light and shadows. Simply stunning!

Ciao a tutti, ho realizzato questo nuovo video dedicato al grande artista francese Jean-Honoré Fragonard (Grasse, 5 aprile 1732 – Parigi, 22 agosto 1806) è stato un pittore francese, importante esponente del rococò e uno dei maggiori artisti francesi del XVIII secolo. I suoi dipinti sono caratterizzati da un particolare uso della luce e dalla rarefazione di determinate parti, utilizzata come espediente per rendere la leggerezza di alcuni elementi, come i panneggi o le bianche acconciature femminili. Fu un pittore storico, paesaggista e di genere. Si dedicò, con grande eleganza, anche alla pittura di carattere frivolo e malizioso, cosiddetta "erotica". loretogalleriadarte.jimdo.com Ciao buona visione a tutti Musica sottofondo video: 1 ) What is love Da The Age of Innocence da Van Syla 2) The Age of Innocence Da The Age of Innocence da Van Syla Informazioni Video : Questo video non è assolutamente in nessun modo a scopo di lucro.Il lavoro è stato realizzato solo come elogio al grande artista francese Jean-Honoré Fragonard Grazie

Saturday, July 29, 2017 On loan to the Harvard Art Museums from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s Young Girl Reading is one of the most famous French rococo paintings in America. Part of a series known as figures de fantaisie, this painting has recently been the subject of art historical discovery and technical analysis. This event brought together two scholars working on Fragonard and on the period in question: Yuriko Jackall, assistant curator of French paintings at the National Gallery of Art and organizer of an upcoming exhibition on Fragonard (Fall 2017); and Marika T. Knowles, junior fellow in the Harvard Society of Fellows and a specialist in French art, culture, and literature of the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. harvardartmuseums.org/visit/calendar/fragonards-young-girl-reading-new-perspectives

Jean-Honoré Fragonard nació en Grasse y en 1738 se trasladó a París, donde, por consejo de François Boucher, comenzó su aprendizaje con Chardin. Al poco tiempo Fragonard entró en el estudio de Boucher y, en 1752, a pesar de que no era alumno de la Academia, se le permitió concursar en el Prix de Roma, que ganó con la obra Jerobán ofreciendo sacrificios a los ídolos, en París, en la École Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts. En 1753 ingresó en la École Royale des Elèves Protéges, donde permaneció hasta 1756, año en el que viaja a Roma. Durante su estancia en Italia conoció al pintor Hubert Robert, y al abate Saint-Non, con quienes visitó Nápoles, Bolonia, Venecia y Génova, itinerario que Fragonard documentó realizando numerosos dibujos, muchos de los cuales se conservan en Londres en el British Museum. A partir de 1761 se encuentra de nuevo en París, donde durante los años siguientes trabajó realizando encargos para coleccionistas y marchantes. En 1765 Fragonard entró en la Academie Royale, para cuyo ingreso pintó Coreso y Calírroe, del Musée du Louvre. Además de cuadros de caballete, el artista también ejecutó para los palacios de la alta sociedad francesa decoraciones, de las cuales sólo ha llegado intacta hasta nuestros días Los progresos del amor, ejecutada, por encargo de la condesa du Barry, para el pabellón del castillo de Louveciennes, hoy conservada en la Frick Collection de Nueva York. En general Fragonard prefirió las pinturas galantes que los clientes privados demandaban, como el famoso Columpio, de The Wallace Collection de Londres, realizada para el barón de Saint-Julien; por este motivo apenas tuvo presencia en las exposiciones del Salon durante los años siguientes. Con la llegada de la Revolución en 1789 Fragonard abandonó París. A su regreso, en 1792, el artista se encontró sin protectores ni clientela. Murió en París, en 1806.

Jean Honoré Fragonard Fragonard naquit à Grasse le 5 avril 1732. Venu tôt à Paris afin de suivre des études de droit, la précocité de son goût l'orienta vers la peinture. Il en commença l'étude sous la direction de Chardin sans véritablement y trouver une connivence. C'est François Boucher qui comprit et affirma les dons du jeune garçon en le présentant au concours de Rome dont il remporta le premier prix en 1752. Après trois ans d'étude avec le peintre français Carle Van Loo à l'école des élèves protégés, il séjourna quelques années en Italie (1753-1756). La peinture du maître vénitien Tiepolo exerça sur lui une profonde influence, ainsi que le style baroque d'un Pierre de Cortone. Son travail resta encore académique, pastichant en un même élan la manière religieuse des anciens et la peinture contemporaine de son maître Boucher dans le rendu du paysage italien. Ses peintures sont souvent représentées sur de la vaisselle en porcelaine! Musique: Lost love de Enzo Carlino

Jean-Honoré Fragonard Fragonard was one of the greatest French painters and printmaker in the two brilliant pre-Revolution decades. Fragonard showed such talent and inclination for art that he was taken at the age of eighteen to François Boucher; although, he was officially less recognised than his teacher. In his work he focused mainly on large canvases, whose late Rococo manner was distinguished by remarkable facility, exuberance, and eroticism.The Rococo style of art was characterised by lightness, grace, playfulness and intimacy and emerged out of France around the beginning of the 18th century and in the following century spread throughout Europe. One of the most prolific artists, Fragonard produced more than 550 paintings (not counting drawings and etchings), of which only five are dated. But after the Revolution he found himself in a very difficult position as the fame and popularity of classical painters such as David pushed him to the margins of public interest. As a result of this, Fragonard returned to Paris early in the nineteenth century, where he died in 1806, almost completely forgotten. The Swing is Fragonard's best known work. But! Another artist came up with one of the main parts of the picture. A courtier asked first Gabriel François Doyen to make this painting of him and his mistress. Doyen refused, but also said: — It is necessary to add to the essential idea of your picture by making Madame's shoes fly into the air.
