Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres was a French neoclassical artist, best known for his portraits. Born in Paris, Ingres studied with Jacques Louis David, France’s most famous artist during the period of the French Revolution, and a devoted follower of the High Renaissance painter Raphael. Ingres was one of only five artists to be selected by Napoleon to paint full sized portraits of him and his family. Ingres went to work in Rome and Florence and was very pleased with the paintings that he completed whilst in Italy. Ingres’ Paris Exhibitions were highly praised and he became both famous and popular. Dominique Ingres is acknowledged by Picasso, Degas and Matisse as having great influence on their work.
The Grand Odalisque by Jean-Dominque Ingres was commissioned by the sister of Napolean and depicts a concubine looking over her shoulder.
