“The Swing”, 1767

“The Swing (above) also known as The Happy Accidents of the Swing is an 18th century oil painting by Jean-Honoré Fragonard. Painted in 1767, it is considered as one of the masterpieces of the rococo era.

“The painting depicts a young man hidden in the bushes, watching a woman on a swing, being pushed by her husband. Her husband is hidden in the shadow, as he is unaware of the affair. As the lady goes high on the swing, she lets him take a furtive peep under her dress.”
