‘The Swing’, 1767, by Fragonard
Look at this charming scene! Oh wait, look a bit closer – suddenly it’s not quite so innocent. Rococo smut-merchant Jean-Honoré Fragonard cracked the pictorial equivalent of a dirty innuendo here, by positioning the gentleman who commissioned the picture just beneath the lady on the swing, giving him one eye-opener of a view. Oh la la! It’s enough to get you hot under the collar.
