Description: The Bolt c. 1778 Oil Canvas Painting:

  • Hand-painted oil on canvas
  • Versailles king frame with embellished metallic finish
  • Ready to hang

Jean-Honore Fragonard's Bolt is, at first glance, a gorgeous depiction of a passionate scene between two lovers. Painted as a slightly more profane complement to his sacred The Adoration of the Shepherds, it contains numerous items of erotic symbolism in his trademark style. Like many of his works, its central themes are the power of love, desire, temptation, and how these manifest in relationships between lovers. It's the kind of saucy scene adored by the French upper class during the reign of Louis XVI. Again taking inspiration from Dutch artists, the soft skin tones and flowing folds of fa ic give it a dynamic elegance, ought out by its dramatic lighting. Eye-catching and thought-provoking, this handmade oil painting can bring sensual drama into any environment.
