Title: Eighteenth Century Painting:


1
Eighteenth Century Painting Rococo
Neoclassical
2
Jean-Honore Fragonard The Swing, 1765
Describe this scene What is happening?
3
Who are these people? What class? What Estate?
4
Write some dialog for her!
5
How is this a very 18th Century Scene?
6
Why do you think Fragonard painted this?
Was there any particular message?
What was his audience?
7
Youre right!...
…no particular message
Just court art showing aristocrats at play in
the last days of the Old Regime in France.
8
What is it about Fragonards style and technique
that makes this painting so well suited to its
subject or theme?
9
Right!
  • Light pastel colors
  • Soft edges

Create a lighthearted, airy atmosphere
10
Why was 1789 a bad year for these people?
1793-4?
11
What effect do you think the French Revolution
had on artists like Fragonard
12
And now for something completely different
13
Remember our friend Marat?
Thats right, victim of Charlotte Corday as
painted by Jacques Louis David
14
How would you compare these?
15
Heres another old friend by David The
Death of Socrates
16
Remember? Whats he saying?
17
David painted this in 1787…
Why do you think he did that at that time?
What was his audience?
Did he have a message for the French people?
18
Socrates was willing to die for his beliefs.
Could David be preparing enlightened Frenchmen
to do the same?
Is it time, once again, to stand up to the state
and challenge authority?
19
Compare the styles of these two paintings
20
Look at the hard edges, clearly defined figures
and sharp colors of the David
21
Just right for the solid, solemn moment being
portrayed
