More information

Fragonard was awarded the Prix de Rome in 1752 and remained in the city from 1756 to 1760 as a ‘pensionnaire’ of the Academie de France. In 1759 he became acquainted with the Abbot De Saint Non, with whomhe became friends and who was at the same time his patron. In his last year in Rome the two men visited the Villa d’Este in Tivoli, renowned for its picturesque ruins of the villa of the Roman emperor Hadrian. This drawing was probably made there.
