Ingres died in 1867
14 January, 2016
French painter Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780 – 1867) was a French Neoclassical painter, an important forerunner of the late 19th-20th artistic revolutions.
Although he considered himself to be a painter of history in the tradition of Nicolas Poussin and Jacques-Louis David, by the end of his life it was Ingres’s portraits, both painted and drawn, that were recognized as his greatest legacy.
We remember here that the exhibition Ingres held at the Museo del Prado, Madrid, will be open until March 3 2016, offering a precise chronological presentation of Ingres’ work and particular attention to his complex relationship with portraiture.
