Jean Honoré Fragonard: The Musical Contest

The Musical Contest: Jean Honoré Fragonard

The Musical Contest, painted in 1755 by Jean Honoré Fragonard is in the Rococo tradition of French art. This tradition focused on the softness of execution and colors pleasing to the eye. The angle of the woman’s parasol and that of the tree form a triangle or pyramid that lends balance and stability to the picture.

Jean Honoré Fragonard’s The Musical Contest is located in the Wallace Collection in London, United Kingdom.
