      Rococo style
      Fragonard is the last artist to end this particular style
      Rubenist style painter
      Watteau was a great influence
      Was considered a erotic and risqué image in its time because women didn’t wear under garments
      NOTE Artistically, Fragonard is the final segment in a closed circle of aristocratic French like and taught just prior to the revolution. Never did a style end so abruptly as did Rococo.
