Great-grandson of Jean-Honoré Fragonard, son of Oscar Fragonard and nephew of Théophile, Antonin showed his talents as a sculptor at a very young age. His premature death at the Charenton hospice interrupted a promising career.

La Gimblette, a charming terracotta sculpture by the artist, was based on a painting by his great-grandfather.
