Summary
"Jean Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806) was a virtuoso draftsman whose works on paper count among the significant achievements of his time. This book focuses on the role of drawing in Fragonard's creative process and provides a modern reevaluation of his graphic work, while showcasing his mastery and experimentation with drawing in a range of media. Unlike many old master painters, who used drawings primarily as preparatory tools, Fragonard explored their potential as works of art in their own right. The 100 works featured in this publication include well-loved masterpieces, new discoveries, and works that have been long out of the public eye, illuminating the career of a ceaselessly inventive artist whose draftsmanship was at the core of his remarkable body of work." -- Publisher's description
