Gérard, François Pascal Simon, Baron, painter, born at Rome, of French and Italian parentage; came to Paris when a youth, where he studied painting under David; in 1795 his “Blind Belisarius” brought him to the front, whilst subsequent work as a portrait-painter raised him above all his contemporaries; his masterpiece, “Entry of Henri IV. into Paris,” brought him a barony at the hands of Louis XVIII.; his historical paintings, characterised by minute accuracy of detail, include “Napoleon in his Coronation Robes,” “Battle of Austerlitz,” &c. (17701837).
