Chronologie

One of the most gifted draughtsmen of the 18th century in France, Jean-Honoré Fragonard drew in a variety of media, using pen and ink, red or black chalk or brush and wash with equal freedom and complete assurance. It is often difficult to securely date his drawings, as few sheets are dated and only rarely can they be specifically connected with his paintings.
