Opposites attract in the unorthodox combination of Romanticism and Neoclassicism in the remarkable artwork of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres. Originally from France, Ingres (1780 – 1867) was deeply influenced by Raphael, crafting sensuous, elegant works abounding in calligraphic lines and exceptional texture. Famous for his portraits, Ingres preferred painting women, striving to reveal their inner beauty. He also painted historical and religious subjects, and influenced many future icons, including Degas, Renoir and Picasso. Ingres’ unparalleled artworks are displayed at the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum and the Frick Collection in New York.
