Jean-Honoré Fragonard had an extensive career. It began mainly when Fragonard won the 1753 Prix de Rome with a painting titled Jeroboam Sacrificing to the Golden Calf. Soon after the takeoff of his career, Honoré became a prominent name within the Rococo artistic movement, which was filled with light colors, asymmetrical designs, and curved, natural forms. The Rococo style emerged in Paris during the eighteenth century, more specifically during the reign of Louis XV. This was due to the fact that during this time, the French upper class experienced a new social and intellectual freedom.
