The leading exponent of the Rococo style, Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s paintings are characterised by remarkable facility, exuberance and frivolous hedonism.

Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Fragonard’s complete works in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
