Louis Chéron (2 September 1660 – 26 May 1725) was a wonderful French painter, illustrator, philosopher, and art teacher (all social classes). His art and engravings bravely depict the male form with energy and beauty. He focusses on capturing the Greco-Roman ideal and all the macho graces of the Hellenistic Age. The pantheon of Gods is explored within the series of engravings.
Louis Chéron captures the male ideal and masculinity with beauty and class. Wonderful viewing pleasure.
