Charles André Van Loo (1705 - 1765), also known as Carle Van Loo, came from a famous family of artists originally from Flanders. Even his grandfather Jacob Van Loo was a painter, as was his brother Jean-Baptiste Van Loo. However, Carle was probably the most successful of all Van Loos. His education started very early, because his father died when he was 7 years old. So he had to move to his 21 years older brother Jean-Baptiste and his family. Not only did Carle learn from his brother, but during his trips to Italy he had the opportunity to take lessons from famous artists. During the second stay in Italy (1716 - 1718) he went to apprenticeship with the painter Benedetto Luti and the sculptor Pierre Legos.

His first oil painting "The Good Samaritan" was made around 1723, after he was back in Paris. He received his first assignment "Presentation of Jesus in the Temple" in 1725. Previously, he supported his brother Jean-Baptiste in some major assignments. He won the Prize Prix de Rome of the French Academy in 1724. The award was to finance his stay in Rome. Since the academy did not pay, Van Loo had to earn the money for the journey. So he came the journey until 1728 start. Around the same time his competitor François Boucher, as well as his nephews Louis-Michel and Francois Van Loo came to Rome. Carle Van Loo was also convincing in Italy and rose quickly. His paintings and ceiling paintings even caught the attention of Pope Benedict XIII.

After working for several years in Rome, Florence and Turin, Carle returned to Paris in 1734. He was immediately admitted to the Royal Art Academy. Only a few years later he became a professor himself, later he became the principal and finally the director of the Academy. His students included Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Boucher's son-in-law Francois-Hubert Drouais or Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder. Van Loos last life was also his most successful. He was in demand at the court, at the church as well as the wealthy individuals, which made his works very diverse. Twice he was allowed a portrait of King Louis XV. and once the queen in Versailles paint. © Meisterdrucke
