Jean-Honoré Fragonard (called “the Amiable Frago” by his friends) was born on April 5, 1732 into a solidly middle-class family. They resided in the city of Grasse in the hills of southeastern France, not far from the Mediterranean. His father, François Fragonard, was a glove manufacturer. Somewhere around this time he invested heavily into a business plan to supply Paris with its first fire pump, in which he lost his money. In an attempt to recover it, he moved with his family to the capital, where the matter ended in a ruinous lawsuit. Honoré was about six at this time. The family had rather standard ambitions for their only child, and by his mid-teens they obtained for Honoré a desirable clerkship with a notaryю Read Jean-Honoré Fragonard's Full Biography
