French Neo-classicism Painter
Ingres, a pupil of David's, never let his brushwork show. As a Neo-classicist, he consciously kept emotion out of his works. He preferred painting historical narratives and felt that portraits were somehow beneath him. Yet, his portraits were his best work and that by which we remember him.
