Forgotten from great history of painting, Anne-Louis Girodet is now in the spotlight by this exposure of the Louvre which is devoted to him this autumn. Master of a fantastic neoclassicism in the follow of prestigious David (of which it will attend the workshop), he will add to the traditional vision a romantic powder of phantasmagoria nearer to the fairy tales than of the splendid allegories of his predecessor. Châteaubriand and Balzac recognized him very early, seeing in the young artist a precursor corresponding to their romantic enthusiasm. Its portraits have a remarkable strength, its deputy of Santo Domingo is a black man. The American forests, the Indians, a certain idea of orientalism houses its paintbrush and suggest a world of escape in agreement with the first accounts from voyage from the romantic nomads. A French painter to rediscover for his single poetry.
