These selected paragraphs distill the contents and give you a quick look inside Fragonard Masterpieces in Colour Series:Look inside the book: As the glovemaker looked out of his sombre house over the sunlit slopes of the grey-green olive-trees that stretched away to the deep blue waters of the sea, he vowed his child to commerce and a thrifty life in this far-away country place that was but little vexed with the high ambitions of distant, fickle, laughing Paris, or her splendid scandals, nay, scarce gave serious thought to her gadding fashions or her feverish vogues-indeed, the attenuated ghosts of these once frantic things wriggled southwards through the provinces on but sluggish feet to the high promenades of Grasse-as the worthy mercer was first in all the little town to know by his modest traffic in them, and that, too, only long after the things they shadowed were buried under new millineries and fopperies and fantastic riot in the gay capital. ...The mother besought the genius of France to make a genius of her son, and Boucher, with kindly smile upon his lips, glancing over the immature work of the prodigy, told the lad that he might come back to him in six months' time, pointing out to him, with all that large-hearted friendliness and sympathy that made him the loved idol of the art-students, that he lacked sufficient dexterity in the use of his tools to enter his studio or to benefit by apprenticeship to him, and advising the anxious mother to take him to Chardin as the supreme master in France from whom to learn the mastery of his craft.
