Brief Biography: Ingres was a Neoclassical painter. He was deeply respectful of the past and assumed the role of a guardian of academic orthodoxy against Romanticism. Ingres’ paintings show a suavity of outline and controlled hatchings to make brushstrokes almost invisible. Among his friends was the composer Paganini with whom he would play the violin.
