The History of Art And The Curious Lives of Famous Painters
Jules Elie Delaunay
Education - studied under Hippolyte Flandrin at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris and laer at the prestigious Académie de France in Rome
Cause of Death - Heart Failure
Jules Elie Delaunay's paintings are magnificent examples of the Neoclassical style recognized by the French Academy in the nineteenth century. His themes of ancient mythological heroes, muscular male physiques, and historical battle scenes, were all within guidelines espoused by the Academy. To his credit Delaunay realized the danger of undue acceptance of strict rules, rejecting the overstated frostiness of the purest forms of neoclassicism and adding voluptuous lines, a refined feel and a harmonious touch.
