Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

$ 2.99

The chief exponent of French Neoclassical painting in the mid-nineteenth century, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres is noted for his cool, meticulously drawn works, representing the stylistic antithesis of the contemporary Romantic school. As a monumental history painter, Ingres sought to perpetuate the classical tradition of Raphael and Poussin, though today it is his portraits that are recognised as his greatest legacy. The extraordinary clarity of expression and microscopic detail of his work, rendered at a consistently, almost unbelievable quality won him many admirers. His expressive distortions of form and space made him an important precursor of modern art, influencing Degas, Picasso and Matisse. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Ingres’ complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
