Ary Scheffer was born on February 10, 1795 into a turbulent time. Napoleon Bonaparte had transformed all of Europe, the old order had been turned upside down. Scheffer's birthplace was Dordrecht in the Batavian Republic, which had been formed only a few days before his birth. This construct was the forerunner of the Kingdom of Holland, whose king was Louis Napoleon, one of Bonaparte's brothers.

Scheffers parents were both artists, painters the father, miniature painter's mother. His brother Henry also became a painter. Ary's talent became apparent early on. The parents started his education and at the age of eleven he started his art studies at the academy in Amsterdam. At the age of 13, he exhibited his first major work. When he was 17, the family moved to Paris, where Ary received further lessons. He became acquainted with the later famous painters Delacroix and Gericault , whose influence is palpable in his manner of painting. Throughout his life, Scheffer Louis remained very attached to Holland, even teaching his children. Through these relationships he received countless assignments from members of the fine society, who loved to be portrayed by him. Scheffer had a daughter who also became a painter. One of his students was the sculptor Frederic Auguste Bartholdi , who later designed the Statue of Liberty for New York.

In keeping with the taste of the time, Scheffer's painting was initially strongly influenced by classicism, his motifs from Greek and Roman antiquity, the clear language of form and color. He painted works based on literary models of Dante, Shakespeare and Goethe, illustrated ballads and poems. Many religious motifs were also included in his work. His style emancipated itself from that of other romantics and was well received. Over 500 portraits of such famous contemporaries as Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt or Charles Dickens consolidated his reputation. He died highly decorated on June 15, 1858 in Argenteuil. © Meisterdrucke
