On Grasse’s main pedestrian street, this small museum explores the work of Grassois painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732–1806), whose risqué paintings of love scenes shocked and titillated 18th-century France with their licentious love scenes. This elegant 18th-century villa was Fragonard’s home for a year in 1790, and contains several of his major paintings, as well as a stunning trompe l’œil fresco in the stairwell by his equally gifted son. Admission also includes entry to the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire de Provence.
