Louis-Léopold Boilly is one of the painters to whom fame and economic success were accorded during his lifetime. This does not mean that the artist did not have to master crises. In 1794, at the height of the French Revolution, he almost lost his head. His great talent not only got him into trouble, but also saved him from it.

The life of little Louis Leopold started quite unspectacular. He was the son of a wood sculptor from La Bassée, a small town in northeastern France. Nothing is known about his mother. Boilly showed both great interest and talent for painting as a child. At the age of just twelve, he already sold his first paintings. At 14, he presented his works to the Augustinian order in the nearby provincial capital Douai. So finally the Bishop of Arras became aware of the young Boilly and brought him to his court.

This was the beginning of the artist's career, which he soon continued in Paris. The mediator was the painter Dominique Doncre, who taught him illusionistic painting (trompe l'oeil). Before the revolution broke out, Boilly and his teacher were welcome guests in the Paris salons. His style was too erotic for the prudish Jacobins. He only escaped a punishment that would probably have cost his head by a clever move: he made a great portrait of the highly respected revolutionary leader Jean Paul Marat. After that, he was considered rehabilitated.

Boillys had a penchant for genre pictures, often amorous. His work is therefore not only of artistic importance, but also documents the moral history of the French middle class from the monarchy to the Napoleonic era to restoration among the Bourbons. This also makes his work unique, since hardly any artist of his time reached a comparable age and remained productive until his death. Boilly died in Paris at the age of 84 and was considered one of the most popular French painters of his time. The artist was a member of the Legion of Honor and was honored with numerous prizes. Today his most famous works include the "Triumph of Marat", the painting that saved his life, the "Entrance to the Jardin Turc" and the portrait of an unknown beauty on a bidet, entitled "La Toilette intime" got known. © Meisterdrucke
