Seductive art reunited
TOLEDO - The Toledo Museum of Art opens special focus exhibition "Love and Play: A Pair of Paintings by Fragonard" Jan. 24 in Gallery 28.
The exhibit brings together Jean-Honore Fragonard's companion paintings "Blind Man's Buff" and "The See-Saw" painted in the 1750s and are considered symbolic depictions of seduction.
"They're risqu√©, they're provocative-and the artist intended these canvases to be seen together," said Lawrence W. Nichols, a senior curator.
They have not been shown together in 25 years. "Blind Man's Buff," part of the Museum's collection, and "The See-Saw," on loan from the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid, will be displayed alongside two engraved copies of the paintings, a terracotta sculpture by Clodion and a small selection of French decorative arts of the period.
The exhibit continues through May 4.
