    Jean Honoré Fragonard, "A Young Girl Reading", 1776. Oil on canvas, 81x65cm. National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC. Rococo. Fragonard painted this very quickly—in an hour, according to his friends—using bold, energetic strokes. The girl's dress and cushion are painted with quick and fluid strokes, in broad unblended bands of sharp color.

Painter and printmaker whose late Rococo manner was distinguished by remarkable facility, exuberance, and hedonism.
