©Estheraparis.com



Fragonard in love, suitor and libertine, such is the theme of the latest exhibition presented by the Musée du Luxembourg, until January 24th, 2016.

According to the Goncourt brothers, the 18th century was an era of seduction, love, intrigue and Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806) was its main illustrator. The exhibition focuses on the mid-18th century, a time when the spirit of Enlightenment was deeply influenced by English sensualism.

The installation shows more than 80 pieces, some of which are very well-known and lent by the most prestigious collections in Europe and the United-States.

"Lovely" exhibition ;-)
