Our Insiders' Article

Fragonard in Love

The subject of Fragonard in Love: Suitor and Libertine is gallantry and libertinism. It might be shocking to some people, but the beauty of the paintings portrayed in this exhibition will surely impress everyone. What is displayed here at the exhibition is a colorful and eye-catching array of paintings, mostly by famous French painter Fragonard (1732-1806). And if that’s not good enough to convince you to see this exhibition, you’ll love to hear about the controversial themes of the 18th century, such as … women who were reading!

Highlights

You will discover a vast array of themes and rooms about gallantry and libertine love up until the 18th century like:

  • The Gallant Shepherd. One of the main French values in the 18th century was gallantry, which is portrayed here through the works of both poets and moralists.
  • Fragonard, Illustrator of Libertine Tales. Some of these were licentious tales that were highly successful starting in the 1750s.
  • Dangerous Reading. Women were meant to be chaste at the time, therefore they were prohibited from reading, but they did so anyway to the dismay of moralists
  • Love Moralised, a new form of love is finally celebrated with the end of Liaisons Dangereuses (Dangerous Affairs), and this one is full of virtue and conjugality. 

Conclusion

Jean-Honoré Fragonard is still famous today for his audacity and progressiveness in depicting intimate scenes of love. It is easy to see why in this exhibition. Don’t miss out on Fragonard in Love: Suitor and Libertine at the intimate and cozy Musée du Luxembourg and step inside the dynamic world of love, lust, seduction and impulsiveness. It’s a true delight for the eyes, and an unbeatable escape from the city.
