About the Artist:
Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806) was born in Grasse (South of France), the son of a glove maker, but the family soon moved to Paris, where he studied under Boucher and Chardin. He won the Prix de Rome and travelled throughout Italy.
He survived the Revolution by absenting himself in Grasse during the terror and then through the protection of his younger friend, Jacques-Louis David, Art Director of the Republic. However, his identification with the old regime finished his career. It is said that he died after a stroll in the Champ de Mars eating an ice cream!
