Jean-Frédéric Schall
(French, 1752 - 1825)
This person is associated with: Rococo

French rococo painter.

He trained under Lépicié and became associate of the Academy in 1772.

Along with Fragonard, Trinquesse or Lafrensen, he was among the last rococo painters in the final years of the Ancient Regime. He painted many small genre scenes in the style of Fragonard, especially dancing girls with an erotic touch, which seem to have been quite successful as at least 173 of his works were engraved.

However, Neoclassicism and Revolution forced him to change his style and he moved to fantasy portrait during the Empire, but he slowed his production as it was less successful than before. Nevertheless, the French Restoration brought him his former patrons back and he made the same works again.
