Born on April 5th 1732, Fragonard, 14 years old, joins François Boucher studio. Thanks to him, he’s going to improve his painter skills and, in 1752, he wins the first Rome’s price with “Jeroboam sacrifices to idols”. This recognition allowed him to study during three years at the “Haute- Ecole” managed by the painter Carle Van Loo. Then he applies at “The Rome Academy” with Hubert Robert.

From 1756 to 1761, in Italia, he studies the famous baroque scene painters such as Pierre de Cortonne but he does not move away from Italian landscapes he adores and that he’ll reproduce in his paintings (Gardens of Este house).

In 1771, Mme du Barry ordered to Fragonard a series of four paintings to decorate her house at Louveciennes: The following, The surprise, The crowned lover, The love letter. Those paintings were rejected by Mme du Barry because their “rococo” style was inappropriate with the neo-classism architecture of the house.

Continuing in the “rococo” way style, he paints “Allegories”. It’s only in 1780, when he wished to attempt a shy neo-classism approach that he painted “The fountain of love». He will adapt his style for the recurrent theme at this time : the children’s life.
