Top Ten Paintings by Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

       Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres was born on August 29, 1780 in Montauban, Tarn-et-Garonne, France. His father was a painter, sculptor and violinist, and taught the young Ingres in all these disciplines. The boy’s talent for music seemed most promising at first — performance of a concerto of Giovanni Battista Viotti was applauded at the theatre of Toulouse. In 1791 he entered the Royal Academy of Arts in Toulouse where he studied art under Joseph Roques, sculpture under J. Vigan, and landscape painting under Briant. In 1796 Ingres went to Paris to study under Jacques-Louis David, where he studied for four years, finally winning the Grand Prix in 1801 for Ambassadors of Agamemnon in the tent of Achilles. He parted company from David over a difference of opinion on style. Ingres’s style was more flat and linear, and focused on contour.
