Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres (born 1780) was born to Anne Moulet and Jean-Marie-Joseph Ingres. He was the first of seven children. His mother was nearly illiterate, while his father was an amateur musician, a sculptor, a painter of miniatures, and a decorative stonemason – a true jack-of-all-trades in the arts. Ingres therefore got much of inspiration from his father. From his father, Ingres received early instruction and encouragement in drawing and music, and his first known drawing was made in 1789 when he was just 8 years old. In 1786, Ingres attended Ecole des Freres de l'Education Chretienne for his studies, but his education was interrupted by the French Revolution. In 1791, the school was closed and that marked the end of Ingres’ formal education. This deficiency in schooling always remained for him a source of insecurity. After the closure of the school his father took him to Toulouse, where he was enrolled in the Academie Royale de Peinture, Sculpture et Architecture. Here he studied under Jean-Pierre Vigan (sculptor), Jean Briant (landscape painter) and Joseph Roques (painter). His musical talent was developed further under the tutelage of Lejeune, the violinist. In August 1797, having been awarded first prize in drawing by the Academy, Ingres traveled to study with Jacques-Louis David in Paris. He remained in David’s studio for 4 years. He followed David’s neoclassical example but revealed a tendency toward exaggeration in his studies. In October 1799, he was admitted to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in the Painting Department, and won the Grand Prix de Rome in 1801 for his work titled “Ambassadors of Agamemnon.” Many framed Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres art are today found in many art galleries and museums worldwide.
