    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.
