ANNE LOUIS GIRODET

Anne Louis Girodet










Biography:
Anne-Louis Girodet [Anne-Louis Girodet de Roucy-Trioson 1767-1824] is a French painter whose works exemplify the first phase of Romanticism in French art.
Girodet began to study drawing in 1773. He later became a student of the Neoclassical architect Étienne-Louis Boullée, with whose encouragement he joined the studio of Jacques-Louis David in late 1783 or early 1784. Girodet won the Prix de Rome 1789 for his Joseph Recognized by His Brothers, which shows the influence of David’s Neoclassicism.
