Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres

Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) was a French Neo-classical painter and defender of classicism. He dedicated himself to history painting, the most respected genre of the Académie. Ingres painted one of the most iconic portraits of Emperor Napoléon I, yet at the time it was dismissed as overly gothic and archaic. In La Gande Odalisque he merged elements of linearity with sensuality of the nude, and in The Turkish Bath he extended his legacy into the modern era.
