Does this scene look familiar? It might, if you've recently seen a certain computer-animated adaptation of one of my favorite fairy tales. The good news is I liked it a lot more than I thought I would based on the trailer (which was not at all).
The bad news is it doesn't really resemble Fragonard's The Swing (which, coincidentally enough, I also saw recently, at the Wallace Collection), although the animators referenced the painting for inspiration (Bill Desowitz, "Chicken Little and Beyond," Animation World Network, 11/4/2005). The more I look at it, though, the more I notice elements of The Swing--the palette, the frothiness of the flowers and leaves--that did make it into the movie. Oh, and this iconic image:
Have you seen Tangled? What did you think?
