Fragonard in love: an exhibition that will make you blush…

If, like us, you thought Tom Ford was the inventor of chic porn, you are going to be surprised...

During the Century of Enlightenment, a certain Jean-Honoré Fragonard already painted naughty, daring scenes – even sulfurous ones. Works that were always amongst the court of Louis XV, known for its libertine mores. The Vicomte de Valmont and Marquise de Merteuil seem to have been deeply inspired...

The Musée du Luxembourg is lifting the veil on this aspect of the talented painter’s work. Flirtatious moments between gallantry and libertinage, desire and passion, sensuality and eroticism, always depicted with grace and finesse on canvas, as sketches and illustrations.

We adore: a true source of inspiration during the era of Liaisons Dangereuses with 90 works exploring the thousand and one facets of lovers’ sentiment.

Keep an eye on our Instagram @doitin_paris account. Invitations to the exhibition will be posted!
