Antoine-Jean Gros

(1771 - 1835)

Biography


Antoine-Jean Gros was born into the family of a Parisian miniature painter on 16 March 1771. He received his first lessons in painting from his father; in 1785 he became a pupil of Jacques-Louis David (1748 -1825). During the French Revolution he was accused of sympathy to the royalists, and in 1793 had to leave the country. With the help of his teacher, J.-L. David, he went to Italy, where he lived mainly in Florence and Genoa, making a living from miniatures and portraits. Read Antoine-Jean Gros's Full Biography
