Fragonard opted to paint the frivilous themes people wanted to buy and became rich. Boucher had become old and introduced "Frago" as he called him, to Bergeret de Grandcour who became his most lavish patron. His paintings were in the style of what is called the Rococo period.

These paintings featured soft colors and natural, carefree scenes. Young Girl Reading is linked to a series of Fragonard paintings known as portraits de fantaisie (imaginary portraits) that upended established conventions of portraiture and was the subject of a National Gallery of Art exhibition in Executed very quickly—purportedly in an hour—these compositions featured half-length single figures on canvases of very similar dimensions.

On 17 Septemberhe took up his abode at the French Academy in Rome, then presided over by Charles-Joseph Natoire. While at Rome, Fragonard contracted a friendship with a fellow painter, Hubert Robert. Inthey toured Italy together, executing numerous sketches of local place: Grasse, France.

Fragonard: All in the Family. Almost everyone has heard of the painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard, a major 18th-century French artist, but few know that he was born in Grasse, France’s perfume capital, and the son of a maître gantier et parfumeur, a master glovemaker and perfumer.

And it’s certainly not by chance that a famous perfume company in Grasse carries his name. Among his most popular works are genre paintings conveying an atmosphere of intimacy and veiled erotic. Fragonard has been bracketed with Watteau as one of the two great poetic painters of the unpoetical 18th century in France.

A prodigiously active artist, he produced more than paintings, several thousand drawings, and 35 etchings/5(2). Background. A highly important figure in 18th century French painting, who now ranks among the greatest of all Rococo artists, the exceptionally talented Fragonard trained under Francois Boucher - whose main patron was Louis XV's mistress, Madame de Pompadour - and Jean Chardin, famous for his still life painting and genre works.
