Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) was a French Neoclassical Painter who was also a master of painting portraits. His self view was that of a guardian and conservator of the past style of art forms. In reality, his art style which utilized distortions of form and style, particularly with his numerous portraits, serve as a precursor to modern art. Our pattern collection contains many examples of his neoclassical works including Oedipus and the Sphinx, Jupiter and Thetis, and The Source. We’ve also included many of his portraits including Madame Rivere, Madame Aymon, Mme. Moitessier, Louis-François Bertin, François Marius Granet, Edme-François-Joseph Bochet, and Jean Baptiste Desdeban.
