ACADEMY (Académies): Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres – Man/Woman Study – 1804


We love this artist! His work has a beauty and sensuality to it that warms the hearts of both men and women. We dedicate this post to those who dare to love. This is an academic study of “Man & Woman: In Love.” We hope you found love this month. More on the wonderful work of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres, can be found below the study. His museum is in the city of Montauban, France.

Kisses from PARIS!


A famous and well-respected French Neoclassical painter and academic artist. Ingres was strongly influenced by past artistic traditions and aspired to become the guardian of “academic foundations” and was very much against an art genre or school called. the Romantic style.
