About the Work

In this work as well, Fragonard used red chalk to create a lush park landscape in which he embedded a jolly company. A gleeful couple are seated on a seesaw, waving their arms boisterously in the air; the sounds of the tambourine accompany the adults at their play. The two landscape drawings Obj. No. 1234 Z and 1235 Z were conceived as pendants. Small smudges on both sheets suggest that counterproofs were made from them; this conjecture, however, can no longer be verified today.
