Fragonard Room @ Frick Museum

I revisited Frick Museum recently, and still found Fraganord's work mesmerizing and captivating.

Few works testify more powerfully to the elegance, sensuousness and delicate beauty of that lost world than “The Progress of Love,” the panels created by Jean-Honoré Fragonard for Mme du Barry, the last mistress of Louis XV.
The Pursuit

The Meeting

The Love Letters
The Lover Crowned
Fragonard’s “The Progress of Love”  shipped from France to London and the owner was JP Morgan. After Mr. Morgan died and the panels was first displayed at the Metropolitan Museum in 1914; Henry Clay Frick showed great interest and he bought it for $1.2 Millions and moved the panels to NYC for his new home at 5th Avenue and 70th street.
This would be a perfect room for afternoon tea ...
sipping tea and eating cakes
listening to classic music
and gazing out the windows into the garden ...
