Rococo, lightness and sensuality, playful decadence and upheaval. The French painter Fragonard, a master of this style and an eroticist, whose pictures did not always find favor with Louis XV because they seemed too revealing. Permissive? A young lady of nobility is rocking in a clearing of an unspoilt park. The tree is old and gnarled, like the overripe aristocracy of France 20-30 years before the outbreak of the French Revolution (1789). Over-refinement in clothing contrasts the primeval environment, which is still recognizable by the statues as a park. Keck throws the rocking beauty her right shoe in the air, while spreading her legs and a look under her rushing dress allows. Enthusiastically, the bushy man of aristocratic descent stretches out his hat, obviously fascinated by this game. In the background the swing holds and swings a slightly older lackey, the spouse or a lover. When the French Revolution broke out, Fragonard had to pack up and flee with his pictures to his hometown of Grasse, where he was born in 1732, the son of a poor perfume merchant. He died in 1806. His paintings are now mostly in the New York Frick Collection. © Meisterdrucke
