Jean-Honore Fragonard
(French, 1732 - 1806)
by Jean-Honore Fragonard
This person is associated with: Rococo
French Rococo painter.

He trained under the other prominent painter of the Rococo style: François Boucher.

He won the Prix de Rome in 1751 for his Jeroboam Sacrificing to the Golden Calf.

Apart from the erotic interior scenes for which he is famous, he also painted some landscapes and more "decent" genre scenes. He produced approximatively 550 paintings.

He never entered the French Academy despite the huge success of his works. However he was quickly overshadowed by Neoclassicism and the Revolution ruined him as his patrons had emigrated. To help him, David used his influence to appoint him curator of the Louvre.
