The Swing

1767

Why is it canonical?

Jean-Honore Fragonard was deeply embedded in France's community of painters dedicated to the Rococo style, even studying as a pupil of Boucher. His style took the generations before him even farther, as seen in this work which takes the intrigue, sexuality, and "boudoir" painting style to a whole new, colorful level.
