Musée Fragonard

Museum in Grasse

On Grasse’s main pedestrian street, this small museum explores the work of Grassois painter Fragonard (1732–1806), whose risqué paintings of love scenes shocked and titillated 18th-century France with their licentiousness. Paintings by Marguerite Gérard (1761–1837), Fragonard’s sister-in-law and protégée, and Jean-Baptiste Mallet (1759–1835), another Grasse native, fill other rooms on the 1st floor.
