Hippolyte,FLANDRIN ( 1809 - 1864 )

French painter , b. at Lyons , 23 March, 1809; d. at Rome , 21 March, 1864. He came of a family of poor artisans and was a pupil of the sculptor Legendre and of Revoil . In his education , however, two elements must above all be taken into account. The first is the Lyonnaise genius . Various causes , physical and historical , have combined to give the city of Lyons a character all its own. This is twofold ¡ª religious and democratic ¡ª and the labouring classes have always been an active centre of idealism . This is especially noticeable in its poets, from Maurice Sc¨¨ve to Lamartine . Lyons has also always been the great entrep?t for Italy , and the province was a permanent centre of Roman culture . The second factor in Flandrin's development was the influence of Ingres , without which it is doubtful whether Flandrin would have achieved any fame. In 1829 Flandrin , with his brother Jean-Paul (the landscape painter ), went to Paris , where he became a pupil of Ingres , who conceived a paternal affection for him. In Paris the young man experienced the bitterest trials. He was often without a fire, sometimes without bread, but he was sustained by a quiet but unshakable faith , and finally (1832) carried off the Grand Prix de Rome through "The Recognition of Theseus by his Father ". At Rome , where, after 1834, Ingres was director of the French Academy , his talents expanded and blossomed under the influence of natural beauty, a mild climate, and the noble spectacle of the works of classic and Christian antiquities . He sent thence to the French salons : "Dante and Virgil " (Lyons Museum , 1835); "Euripides" (Lyons Museum , 1835); "St. Clare Healing the Blind" (Cathedral of Nantes , 1836); "Christ Blessing the Children " (Lisieux Museum , 1837). The serenity of his nature , his chaste sense of form and beauty, his taste for effective disposition of details, his moral elevation , and profound piety , found expression in these early efforts. On his return to Paris , in 1838, he was all intent upon producing great religious works.
