La Liseuse (The Reader)
Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806)
A video and our favorite painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard, French painter who was born today in 1732 – “La Liseuse” (The Reader). Music from Marin Marais plays as paintings from Fragonard are rolling. Lovely evening to you with our Video du Jour, enjoy!
