Artist Biography:
Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres was a French Neoclassical painter. Of all his work, he is most recognized for his portraits, both painted and drawn. He once described his inspiration as, "the great masters which flourished in that century of glorious memory when Raphael set the eternal and incontestable bounds of the sublime in art ... I am thus a conservator of good doctrine, and not an innovator."
