A propos de cet article

Hardcover, very good condition. From Publishers Weekly--If the art of Jean-Honore Fragonard (1732-1806) consisted entirely of coy bedroom scenes, chubby cupids, slick sensual allegories and sentimental portraits of bearded old men, one could easily dismiss the French rococo painter as passe. But the exhibition now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and this catalogue, give us Fragonard the moody outsider from Provence, the nature poet who liberated painting with his spontaneous brushwork. Rosenberg, chief curator at the Louvre, where the exhibit made its debut, helps us to appreciate the keen observation of the Italian drawings, the naturalism of the landscapes and animal studies. In the wild poetry of Wagon in the Mud or the totally unforced intimacy of The Kiss, Fragonard tapped depths of feeling rarely glimpsed in his historical or genre paintings. The overwritten text, full of superlatives, is complemented by 1300 illustrations, making this the fullest account to date of Fragonard's opus. Size: 11 x 9.1 x 1.7 inches.
