Jean-Honore Fragonard
1732-1806
Blindman’s Buff (Le Colin-Maillard)
ca. 1775-80
Oil on canvas
Fragonard choosed  to  developed a style that lauded the charm and beauty of the private moments. In Blindman’s Buff, well-dressed men, women, and children play the familiar game in the kind of picturesque overgrown garden. Fragonard’s favorite subject, he  viewed the games as symbolizing the game of courtship.
