The Swing Painting Analysis
"With an air of flirtatious abandon, a beautiful young girl kicks off her dainty show as she swings in a luxuriant garden. We can almost hear the provocative rustle of petticoats as her lover gazes at her from his vantage-point in the undergrowth. Bathed in a shaft of glorious sunlight, the girl in the focus of the composition. Her porcelain perfection, pink dress, and swooping upward movement all bring the viewer's this type of painting, with its frivolity and lightness of touch, characterizes the Rococo period. Fragonard is known for taking this style to its greatest heights. There were other artists at that time Fragonard's own master, Francois Boucher, and the Venetian, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo- who were equally important painters. But it was Fragonard who so perfectly embodied the Rococo spirit - all powder, perfume, and artifice, with a highly polished finish. "
