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.
