Fleur des champs, Louis Janmot, 1845

The Swing, 1777–79, Robert Hubert (French, 1733–1808) or "Robert des Ruines"—as he was known among the French nobility. The Swing belonged to a set of 6 paintings commissioned in 1779 for Louis XVI's brother, the count of Artois, to decorate his pleasure house Bagatelle, near Paris. Depicting a slightly dilapidated and fashionably picturesque Italian garden reminiscent of the Villa d'Este in Tivoli, which Robert studied extensively during his Rome years.
