The Frenchman Hubert Robert was a painter who was born in Paris in May 1733. Little is known about his childhood. His father is said to have been a senior official in Paris. At the age of 12, he began his studies at the university, the Jesuit Collège de Navarre, founded in 1304 by Joan of Navarre, the wife of the King of France. Here, the young Hubert was taught not only in painting, but also in logic, grammar and theology. The French sculptor René-Michel Slodtz became Hubert's favorite lecturer. He followed with great interest his statements about the different perspectives and steadily improved his drawings a little bit further. It is said that thanks to Slodtz's instructive lessons, Hubert Robert decided to take the painter's career path.

After six years at the University of Paris he went to Rome. Here he lived altogether eleven years and built up a large circle of friends and acquaintances. This included some important artists, painters and writers of the time. Giovanni Battista Piranesi and Giovanni Paolo Pannini , who also lived in Rome, had a particular influence on his further development. Piranesi began his career as a copper engraver before working as an archaeologist and architect. Pannini, however, was a well-known Roman Vedutenmaler.

After his stay in Rome Hubert Robert returned to his hometown Paris. It was the year 1793. Hubert celebrated his 60th birthday in troubled times. The great terror of the French Revolution approached. At the beginning of the year, members of the Jacobin Party beheaded King Louis XVI of France. in front of the public with the guillotine. Throughout the country, people who were anti-revolutionists in the view of the Jacobins fell victim to bloody terror. Robert was also arrested in the same year. He was imprisoned in the Paris prisons of Saint-Pélagie and Saint-Lazare. He was freed only after the fall of Robespierre, that was in the summer of 1794. But the French Revolution should last another five years. Robert joined the Jacobins and became a member of the National Convention. The "Convention nationale" was the revolutionary representative body. The convention was replaced by the National Assembly, which was the first national parliament in Europe. With the adoption of the Declaration of Human and Civil Rights in 1799, the French Revolution was ended. The monarchy was henceforth history and the citizens could in the future in free elections on the development of their country. The French Revolution is one of the most momentous events in the long history of Europe. Hubert Robert is still experiencing the first, peaceful years after the revolution and the beginning of the 19th century. He died in 1808, at the age of 75, in his native Paris. © Meisterdrucke
