The artist

Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867)

With a sculptor, ornamentalist and miniaturist father, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres grew up in an environment conducive to the development of his talents as a draftsman. He began his studies at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Toulouse, and perfected his skills with the painter Jacques-Louis David. The latter introduced her to the neoclassical movement, a movement that would inspire her throughout her life. His painting "Les Ambassadeurs d'Agamemnon" earned him the Prix de Rome in 1801. A few years after this success, the painter continued his teaching at the Villa Médicis. His works were the subject of numerous criticisms in Paris and forced him to extend his stay in Italy. It was only in 1824 that his painting, the "Vow of Louis XIII", became known for his painting.
