Jean-Honoré Fragonard⁣⁣⁣ Jeroboam Sacrificing to Idols⁣ 1752⁣ “This work depicts Jeroboam, the first king of northern kingdom of Israel, on the far left, hands raised in prayer. The right side of the composition is far more dynamic in comparison to the statuesque figure of Jeroboam, with officials restraining the man who is to be sacrificed. In the center of the composition, one can make out a golden calf in the background, one of the symbols of God that Jeroboam erected in the temples he built in Dan and Bethel (1 Kings 12:26-30 and 13:1-5).⁣ This work is considered as a perfect example of Fragonard's exuberant style.⁣ The painting won Jean Honoré the Prix de Rome in 1752.”⁣ #paintings #painting #artlovers #artists #famousart #artlegends #art #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #artoftheday #artstagram #artofinstagram #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #jeanhonor éfragonard #fragonard #jeroboamsacrificingtoidols #jeroboam #rococo #18thcenturyart
