Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s Progress of Love is one of
the great painted ensembles of French eighteenthcentury art and is considered to be the artist’s
masterpiece. For more than seventy-five years, the
panels have been a highlight of The Frick Collection.
Colin B. Bailey’s keenly awaited and beautifully
illustrated book published in September by the
museum in association with D. Giles Limited provides
an invaluable and engaging resource on the sequence
and meaning of the panels in the series.
