Jean-Honoré Fragonard, best known as a painter of playful genre subjects, garden landscapes, and fantasy portraits, later turned to the subject of romantic love. Consuming Passion: Fragonard’s Allegories of Love focuses on Fragonard’s work during the 1780s and 1790s when he created a series of dramatic reflections on the subject of romantic allegories. This exhibition explores these mysteries and evocative works in a variety of themes: oil painting, drawings, prints, and illustrated books.
