The French painter Théodore Chassériau is one of the most famous representatives of romantic classicism. He was born in Saint-Dominigue in 1819 and died in Paris in 1856. Already at the age of eleven, Chassériau studied as a boy in the studio of Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres in Paris, one of the most important classicists of his time. Later, however, two other artists influenced his Sil, Paul Delaroche - a history painter - and Eugene Delacroix , a pioneer of Impressionism. Chassériau was popular for his portraits and historical scenes that influenced painters such as Puvis de Chavannes and Gustave Moreau . Even with Paul Gauguin and Henri Matisse, there are hints of the style of Chassériau, which in turn was influenced by Chavannes and Moreau. In addition, he devoted himself to subjects such as Orientalism, religious themes and allegorical representations.

In 1834 Chassériau left Paris and was appointed head of the French Academy in Rome. Here he was first coined by Delacroix, from whom he took over the play of colors and combined it with the classicist style of Ingres. In 1836, his first works were exhibited in the Paris Salon, a showroom of the Académie des Beaux-Arts. During his stay in Italy, Chassériau had time and muse to study Renaissance frescoes and make landscape sketches. Here were created pictures influenced by Italian Pre-Raphaelite works and Renaissance representations, such as his Venus Anadyomene and his Andromeda. They represent idealistic beautiful women who were shown naked. In addition, he painted at this time religious representations such as Christ on the Mount of Olives and the descent from the Cross. Orientalist paintings are also among his oeuvre, of which "Ali-Ben-hamet, the Caliph of Constantine and chief of the Haractas, followed by his escort" belong to the best known. It was exhibited in the Salon in 1845. A year later, he traveled to Algeria for the first time, where his work »Jewish Women on the Balcony« was created. At the age of 37, shortly before his death, he still worked on various murals for the churches of Saint-Roch and Saint-Philippe-du-Roule, a work that demanded much from him. © Meisterdrucke
