Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, one of the most important pupils of David, at first compiled with his master's Neoclassicism but soon distinguished himself for his eclecticism and entered the front ranks of painting in the 19th century. Ingers' inventive style was often misunderstood by both critics and the public at the time, but today his drawings, portraits, and nudes are seen to be extraordinarily modern in conception. This monograph on Ingres' art includes a broad biographical account of his life and the artistic scene he frequented in Paris and Rome. It places his art within the context of 19th-century art movements, from his youth under the Bonaparte regime to the Third Republic.
