A Young Girl Reading by Jean-Honore Fragonard

Counted cross stitch chart or kit from the Scarlet Quince Fine Art 1701 to 1829 Collection.

Jean-Honoré Fragonard (5 April 1732 – 22 August 1806) was a French painter and printmaker whose late Rococo manner was distinguished by remarkable facility, exuberance, and hedonism. One of the most prolific artists active in the last decades of the Ancien Régime, Fragonard produced more than 550 paintings (not counting drawings and etchings), of which only five are dated. Among his most popular works are genre paintings conveying an atmosphere of intimacy and veiled eroticism.

A Young Girl Reading, or The Reader, is an 18th century oil painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. The painting was given to the National Gallery of Art by the daughter of Andrew W. Mellon following her father's death.

The painting features an unidentified girl wearing a yellow saffron dress, though x-rays have revealed that the canvas originally featured a different image which Fragonard painted over. It is one in a series of paintings by Fragonard featuring young girls.

Approx: 19" x 15" or 49 x 39 cm - when worked on 18ct or 36ct.
