This Painter was born at Paris in 1752. After learning the elements of his art in his native country, he went to Italy where he resided several years, chiefly devoting himself to the study of the remains of antiquity. The present painting was painted by him when at Rome; he introduced in it the most admired ruins of that city for a study and a souvenir. On his return to France, he was elected Member of the Parisian Academy, when he painted for his reception a noble picture of the Pantheon at Rome.
