17871820
a French painter, was born at Bordeaux in 1787. He went to Paris and studied under Vincent, under whom he evinced uncommon talents. In 1812 he gained the first prize of the Academy for his picture of Ulysses Slaying the Suitors of Penelope, which entitled him to go to Rome on a pension from the government. At Rome he painted several classical subjects. After his return to Paris, he exhibited, in 1819, in the Louvre. He died in 1820, in the strength of his manhood, deeply regretted as an artist of great promise.
