Jean-Honore Fragonard - The Visit to the Wet Nurse



In today's selection, French painter Jean-Honore Fragonard's brilliant use of light supplies a tender family scene, and of course, as one would expect from Fragonard, the husband's positioning just below the nurse's bosom is highly suggestive, yet subtle enough that it might not register upon first viewing. Fragonard painted another version of "Wet Nurse" in which this erotic subtext was curiously absent.
