Delaroche, Paul (17971856)

Delaroche, Paul, a French historical painter and one of the greatest, born in Paris; was the head of the modern Eclectic school, so called as holding a middle place between the Classical and Romantic schools of art; among his early works were “St. Vincent de Paul preaching before Louis XIII.” and “Joan of Arc before Cardinal Beaufort”; the subjects of his latest pictures are from history, English and French, such as “The Princes in the Tower” and “Cromwell contemplating the corpse of Charles I.,” a great work; but the grandest monument of his art is the group of paintings with which he adorned the wall of the semicircle of the Palais des Beaux Arts in Paris, which he completed in 1841 (17971856).
