Exhibition Catalogs
Date:
1876
Notes:
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 42
He was a pupil of Le Bourguignon. His talent was acknowledged as soon as he arrived in Paris, and was praised by Louis XIV himself. Parrocel, a battle painter, had himself the courage of a warrior. Alone he had put to flight at Venice, on the Rialto bridge, seven or eight brigands who watched to assassinate him. He, more than any other artist, gave the motion and the expression of courage to the figures in his paintings. He equalled his master in style and excelled him by his colouring. His designs are full of enthusiasm and fire. [P. 7; see entry 04100034 for a note on the work's provenance.]
