Supremely confident of his own skills, Fragonard delighted in astounding fellow artists and friends with his virtuoso handling of a brush. He painted many of these small "portraits of fantasy" in less than an hour. Such was Fragonard's skill, and his delight in it, that he charged a mere louis for his quick single-sitting portraits. This is the "fleeting moment" that the Impressionists would strive to capture half a century later.
