Boucher, Fragonard, and the Rococo in France

Taught by Professor Richard Brettell | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

Jean-Honoré Fragonard's vigorous operatic painting and Boucher's delicate sensuality offer two versions of French Rococo painting and are contrasted to the classically inspired moralism of Greuze and their contemporaries.
