Filmed in the Frick Collection’s Fragonard Room, this fourteen-minute video provides an in-depth look into the history of Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s Progress of Love, a series of fourteen paintings considered by many to be the artist’s masterpiece. The intriguing story behind the commission, rejection, and rehousing of Fragonard’s paintings is brought to life by Colin B. Bailey, former Deputy Director and Peter Jay Sharp Chief Curator at the Frick (now Director of Museums at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco).
