Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres

Time Line


During the Salon's opening in 1806, Ingres was harshly critisized for his representations of Napoleon I and the Riviere family.

In 1811 Ingres finished his final student exercise, the immense Jupiter and Thetis, which was once again harshly judged in Paris. The people were indifferent and only a few artists recognized his merits.

Up until his death in 1867, Ingres only became more popular and increased in relevance due to positions taken as a professor and grand officer of the Legion d'honneur. With this success, he gained renewed confidence and hapiness for the first time since his wife's death in 1849.

The Vow of Louis XIII, exhibited at the Salon of 1824, finally brought Ingres critical success. He was finally being admired throughout France for his work.

In 1802 Ingres made his debut at the Salon with Portrait of a Woman. He was one of the five artists selected to paint full-length portraits of Napoleon Bonaparte.
