Jean-Honor Fragonard(2)

playskool-estonia.com Jean-Honor Fragonard's work and experimentation of the Rococo style was overcome by lukewarm reception by patrons that forced him to experiment instead on Neoclassicism. He was married in1769 and had a son who became one of his favorite models for his artwork. He went around Europe by first going to Italy then passing through Prague and Germany as he returned. The French revolution caused many of his patrons to either be beheaded or hanged resulting in a waning of demand. He fell in love with his wifefs 14 year old sister that added to his misery and disdain from the French Revolution. From then on he was neglected and his discontent with his position had him leave Paris in 1793. He found shelter in the house of a friend Maubert in Grasse which he decorated with a series of decorative panels that was initially intended for the Chateau du Barry titled gRoman dfamour de la jeunesseh. His return to Paris in the early 19th century didnft do much for his faded reputation and he died forgotten and misery in 1806.
