Ingres, Jean-Auguste-Dominique, 1780-1867.
e Artist : painter
Apotheosis of Homer (detail).
b 386 x 515 cm.
Oil on canvas, mounted on panel.
Design Date: 1827 (signed & dated).
The Apotheosis of Homer, which hung in the same 1827 Salon as Delacroix's Death of Sarda-napalus, is the largest of Ingres's Raphaelesque paintings, but is no nearer to pastiche than any of the others. This modern version of Raphael's Parnassus not only proclaimed the stylistic values of the classical tradition but also tried to equal the iconography of The School of Athens in its reunion of great men of ancient and modern times in the realms of literature and the arts.
Style: French Neoclassicist.
