Inspiration by Jean-Honoré Fragonard depicts the moment when an artist receives inspiration Istaknut

Many eighteenth-century artists, French Rococo painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard among them, sought ways to depict artistic inspiration. The painting Inspiration, from 1769, in popular Rococo style, differs from many of his other paintings, especially the portraits painted during his early years, in that it is warmer and more longing than the others. This portrait, likely of Louis François Prault, a publisher in Paris, is one of a series that is now known as the Fantasy Figures. The painting Inspiration is today in the Louvre Museum in Paris.

Jean-Honoré Fragonard in the painting Inspiration, not only intended to present the artist, but also to depict the moment when he receives inspiration. Thus the image itself becomes a source of inspiration for itself, either of a common or divine sense.

In painting Inspiration the artist poses with quill and open book at a desk in a pleasing triangular shape, taking up the bulk of the space. He is in a mid-pose, his actions seem to be "frozen" and his hand with a black bow hanging loosely at the chest, ready for the next action that he will draw from this unseen inspiration. Because of that, his face seemed to be illuminated by inspiration.

The Inspiration is painted in soft yet warm colors. It uses rose, orange, and tones of pastel subdued clay, burnt sienna, cream, and a soft grey for hair. The artist's face is ruddy, almost as if he is wearing lipstick. His flesh is pink, red, rosy, and looks warm to the touch. The artist wears warm, plush, natural, and decorated historical clothes which accentuates this feeling of warmth. Jean-Honoré Fragonard utilizes chiaroscuro and the stark contrast between the light that illuminates the artist and the darkness of the shadows that lie behind him. This gives a subtle emphasis to the artist's facial expression and movement.
