The Swing

Oil on canvas, 97 x 88 cm
Musée du Louvre, Paris

Pierre-Jacques Cazes, known above all for his religious paintings, did a "peasant" series for the Petits Cabinets at Versailles, including a Swing. It was light, yet somewhat false in tone, if compared to Fragonard's masterpiece of elegant sauciness.
