ALLERY OF FRUITFULNESS by Jacob Jordaens (1593 - 1678)
@wallacemuseum
The central female nude, embracing a cornucopia of fruit and vegetables, is Pomona, goddess of gardens and orchards, and protector of the ripening harvest. Silenus, the follower of Bacchus, paid court to her with Pan and a retinue of Satyrs, who can be seen in the background and to the right and left of the central female figures and children. The popularity of this and other allegories of Abundance in the works of Rubens and his followers can be linked to a wish to celebrate the virtues of peace; particularly the Twelve-Year Truce enjoyed by the Northern and Southern Netherlands between 1609-21 during the reign of the Archdukes Albert and Isabella.

Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732 - 1806)
„Les hazards heureux de l'escarpolette (The Swing)“, France, c. 1767 - 1768, Painting, Oil on canvas, Image size: 81 x 64.2 cm, Made up to, Object size: 81.8 x 64.8 cm, Signature: 'fr…..rd' Signed indistinctly, P430
The painting is Fragonard's most famous work, and one of the most emblematic images of eighteenth-century art. Its genesis is reported by the writer Charles Collé. According to his journals and memoirs for 1767, the history painter Gabriel-François Doyen was commissioned by an unnamed ‘gentleman of the Court’ late in 1767 to paint his young mistress on a swing, pushed by a bishop with himself admiring her legs from below. Doyen, who had just had a major success at the Salon as a religious history painter, refused and suggested Fragonard. Fragonard was at that time about to completely change his career from a history painter with important royal commissions to a painter of small and highly sophisticated cabinet pictures. This was at least in part a reaction to his problems with payments from the royal arts administration. The commission might have in part triggered that change or might simply have come at the right moment.The painting marks the re-launch of Fragonard's career with paintings for a small, well-informed circle. Those could either be highly erotic works, like P430, or works that required an advanced knowledge of art history and old master painting. Fragonard's move was highly successful.
