"Confusion" section[edit]

In the current version of the article, there's a major topic heading called "Confusion" at the bottom of the article with the text, "For the monk painter, see Fra Angelico." For ambiguous articles, typically such confusions are cleared up with a hatnote at the top of the article using a template, but I'm not an expert in this subject so I can't even say if this "Confusion" note is valid. ("Fra Angelico" doesn't resemble "Fragonard", they weren't contemporaries, and they didn't paint in the same style, so I can't see any reason why the two of them should be confused.) If nobody objects in a few days, I'll delete this section. Robert K S (talk) 17:38, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Disney's new animated "Rapunzel" based on his style[edit]

Thought it was noteable that the visual style of the latest Disney film Rapunzel is based on "The Swing", etc. 199.214.26.30 (talk) 19:17, 9 April 2008 (UTC)

Chardin's student?[edit]

I'm having trouble finding any detailed reference on "Fragonard studied for six months under the great luminist" (meaning Jean-Baptiste-Siméon Chardin). I asked a related question at the reference desks, on Chardin's students in general, and Antiquary provided a reference stating that "Chardin worked alone. He seems to have had no pupils, except possibly someone to mix his colours" Chardin: An Intimate Art (by Hélène Prigent and Pierre Rosenberg, Harry N. Abrams, 2000, ISBN 9780810928640, page 30). Here's a link to the discussion at the reference desk: Wikipedia:Reference_desk/Archives/Humanities/2011_September_23#Chardin.27s_students.

Can anyone find any references corroborating Fragonard's studies with Chardin? ---Sluzzelin talk 10:29, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

Died in Paris or Grasse?[edit]

This article mentions that Fragonard died in Paris, which is inconsistent with the article on Grasse, which lists Fragonard as a famous person who died there. I'm no expert on Fragonard, but surely the man only died once.74.0.64.138 (talk) 18:52, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

This source says:
"Not a man to be beaten down however, Fragonard went back to Paris just a year later, and became instrumental in working with the new government to help administer the National Museum in the Louvre.
"Living the sweet life until the very end, Jean-Honoré Fragonard died of a stroke on a park bench on August 22, 1806, while eating ice cream." Martinevans123 (talk) 20:18, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
And this this source says:
"Location of death: Paris, France
Cause of death: unspecified
Remains: Buried, Cimetière de Montmartre, Paris, France." Martinevans123 (talk) 20:18, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Fantasy portraits?[edit]

The portrait of François-Henri duc d'Harcourt, to be auctioned by the Bonhams auction house in London on 5 December 2013, is described as "one of Fragonard’s famous 15 "fantasy portraits"". Which are the others? Martinevans123 (talk) 20:10, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Bulgarian version[edit]

Why is the main photo of this guy on the Bulgarian wikipedia page the same as that of NGA's "Portrait of a Young Man" (NGA, 1961.9.18) [1]? Do the Bulgarians know something Anglophones don't? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:441:4480:185A:5916:DC74:3BF2:61C (talk) 07:37, 16 January 2018 (UTC)
