Afternoon Art Talk
Ingres and French Neoclassicism
With Ines Powell,
Educator, Metropolitan Museum of Art
Friday, September 12th at 1:30 PM
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (1780-1867) was a French Neoclassical painter. Neoclassicism is an art movement inspired by the art and culture of ancient Greece and Rome which coincided with the Age of Enlightenment. Ingres regarded himself a master of history paintings, but it is his portraits that are now thought to be his masterworks. His innumerable paintings and drawings had a considerable influence on painters of later generations, such as Degas, Matisse and Picasso.
