In the 1780s, Fragonard created three large series of drawings that were to become – but, unfortunately, never became – book illustrations. The first series of drawings Fragonard did for the book of the famous French writer of the 17th century Lafontaine. Among the illustrations was the picture “A forgiven servant”. There have already been several engravings of these drawings by Fragonard, but a revolution has begun, and the book with his illustrations has never been published. Two other series also did not hit the books. We do not even know the publishers who ordered them to Fragonar.
