Hippolyte Delaroche (1797-1856)


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Hippolyte Delaroche (called Paul), was a French painter born in Paris in 1797. He studied under Baron Gros and established himself as a major artist at the Salon of 1822. In 1837 the adverse criticism of his state-ordered "Sainte Cécile" dissuaded him from accepting further official commissions. Delaroche is considered the most important French painter of the Romantic period. He died in 1856.
Provenance Mrs. Frederick B. Adams [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1954, by gift.
