Description

Jean Honoré Fragonard (French, 1732–1806), The Dreamer, late 1770s

Fragonard was trained as a history painter and received ample recognition from the Royal Academy in Paris, but he soon turned his attention to decorative genre scenes and portraits to appeal to his collectors. In the drawing reproduced on our print, he delights in capturing the light reflected from the girl's silk dress. Liberating form from a defining line, the artist masterfully builds volume almost entirely from a range of spontaneously applied washes. The deep shadows of the background contrast with the luminosity of the foreground in a manner that suggests the influence of Rembrandt, whose work Fragonard knew well.
