Julia Morrisroe is a painter and associate professor at University of Florida. Looking at Painting began as a way to share my commitment to look and occasionally write about a wide variety of painting, contemporary and historical. In particular I'm looking at this as public commonplace book, a long term project to explore what I mean when I say 'thats a painting'.

I was thinking about Fragonard's painting The Swing during a violin concerto Sunday night. The musician was young and talented but the Tchaikovsky piece she played was long. LONG. So I started to think about art movements that were longer than necessary...which led me to Fragonard and his rococo genre paintings.
