Jupiter and Thetis by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres

Jupiter and Thetis by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres

This mythological picture completes a number of mandatory for the students of the French Academy in Rome “parcels” of Ingres to Paris. In Italy, a young painter immersed himself in the study of the artistic heritage of antiquity and the Renaissance.

In the work presented, which seeks to repeat the expressiveness of the silhouettes of the ancient Greek vases, traces of these studies are visible. With all the external academism in it, you can find some pre-romantic trends.
