In the past, the work of Jean Honore Fragonard was often discounted as unimportant, just as many other artists of the rococo style have been looked over in favor of more academically pleasing movements in art. The paintings of Jean Honore Fragonard display a command of grace and charm as well as a technical proficiency that was clearly recognized during his lifetime in even his early achievements. Despite being overlooked in earlier modern times, the name and oil paintings of Jean Honore Fragonard have regained a position of respect and can now be considered among the finest examples of French painting, which were significant in the influence they passed along to later artists, particularly of the Impressionist movement. Jean Honore Fragonard was born in Grasse in 1732 but moved to Paris with his family when he was close to six years old. His precocious abilities in art landed him first an apprenticeship with Jean Baptiste Chardin, but he soon moved to the studio of Franciose Boucher. Thanks to his own natural talent and the enhancement of his natural abilities through his studies and apprenticeships, Fragonard won the prestigious Prix de Rome which provided him with a scholarship to the French Academy in Rome for further training. Prior to attending the French Academy, Fragonard attended the École des Élèves Protégés where he further polished the style of his work. Jean Honore Fragonard artwork became synonymous with the rococo style in the mature period of his work in which he reached the greatest achievement as an artist. Some of the main characteristics of Jean Honore Fragonard paintings that are echoed in the formal qualities of the rococo period are: delicate brushwork, silvery or gold glowing atmosphere and colors, and a happy lightness of mood. For this reason, some critics such as Denis Diderot, dismissed Jean Honore Fragonard’s oil paintings are frivolous wastes. Another characteristic of artwork from the rococo period was that it often contained undercurrents of an erotic or sensual nature which other critics also disapproved of. Despite some disapproval, Fragonard’s artwork was fairly popular among the upper class, one of the most important being Louis XV’s mistress the Comtesse du Barry, and Fragonard received many commissions from clients who wanted a representation of themselves in a frivolously costumed and atmospheric scene. The landscapes of Fragonard also possessed some of the same atmospheric characteristics as some of his more classically rococo pieces. As he neared the end of his career, Fragonard became more interested in painting landscapes which still possessed an air of fantasy as well as other genre scene type paintings that he had often avoided during his earlier career thanks to a great interest in commissions by wealthy clients. After the French Revolution, Fragonard had managed to distance himself enough from his former clients to maintain a respected place in the art world of France and was even allowed to help create the new National Museum which was established by the French Revolutionary Government.
