cabanel

Alexandre Cabanel, Ophelia//Alexandre Cabanel (French: [kabanɛl]; 28 September 1823, Montpellier – 23 January 1889) was a Frenchpainter. He painted historical, classical and religious subjects in the academic style. He was also well known as a portrait painter. According to Diccionario Enciclopedico Salvat, Cabanel is the best representative of the L'art pompier and Napoleon III's preferred painter. Cabanel entered the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris at the age of seventeen, and studied with François-Édouard Picot. He exhibited at the Paris Salon for the first time in 1844, and won the Prix de Romescholarship in 1845 at the age of 22. Cabanel was elected a member of the Institute in 1863. He was appointed professor at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1864 and taught there until his death. He was closely connected to the Paris Salon: "He was elected regularly to the Salon jury and his pupils could be counted by the hundred at the Salons. Through them, Cabanel did more than any other artist of his generation to form the character of belle époque French painting". His refusal together with William-Adolphe Bouguereau to allow the impressionist painter Édouard Manet and many other painters to exhibit their work in the Salon of 1863 led to the establishment of the Salon des Refusés by the French government. Cabanel won the Grande Médaille d'Honneur at the Salons of 1865, 1867, and 1878. A successful academic painter, his 1863 painting The Birth of Venus is one of the best known examples of 19th-century academic painting. The picture was bought by the emperor Napoleon III; there is also a smaller replica (painted in 1875 for a banker, John Wolf) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It was given to them by Wolf in 1893.

#fallenangel #lucifer #cabanel #art The Fallen Angel (in dettaglio), Alexandre Cabanel, 1847, olio su tela, Musée Fabre, Montpellier Alexandre Cabanel è stato un pittore francese, nato a Montpellier nel 1823. Dipinse soggetti storici, classici e religiosi in stile accademico. Fu il pittore preferito di Napoleone III ed il maggior rappresentante della corrente artistica francese nota come L’art pompier. In questa opera, “The Fallen Angel”, realizzata all’apice della sua carriera nel 1847, Cabanel rappresenta l’intensità, la rabbia ed il risentimento nel corpo ma soprattutto nello sguardo dell’angelo caduto, Lucifero; pur non essendo famosa come altri dipinti dello stesso pittore (es. La Nascita di Venere, 1863 ed Ophelia, 1883), è sicuramente degna di nota.

A little hard to tell if I made progress today! She’s going to be rested for a day or two though because the oil paint really needs to dry... becoming a bit unworkable- I should have rested her today but couldn’t leave well enough alone. So, something new tomorrow! Have the next three days at least dedicated to painting bliss #cabanel #venus #oilpainting #oils #longhairdontcare #workinprogress #beach #naked #nude #birthofvenus
