1. Jeune Fille vue de dos. Jean Baptiste Greuze (French, 1725-1805). Oil on canvas.

    Greuze’s pretentiously moralizing rustic dramas constituted a reaction against rococo frivolity in art; by appealing to emotion they were also a revolt against the emphasis placed upon reason and science by the philosophers of the Enlightenment, the intellectual movement that pervaded the first half of the 18th century.
