Theodore Chasseriau
 
 

Portrait of the Artist in a Redingote, 1835
 
 
Theodore Chasseriau, (born Sept. 20, 1819, Samana, Dominican Republic—died Oct. 8, 1856, Paris), French painter who attained some measure of success in his attempt to fuse the Neoclassicism of Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and the Romanticism of Eugène Delacroix.

As a boy, Chassériau entered the studio of Ingres, following his master to Rome in 1834. Chassériau’s immediate success at the Paris Salon of 1836 was confirmed three years later by a Venus and his “Suzanne,” both in the Louvre. About 1840, however, he began to grow dissatisfied with the art of Ingres.

Around 1843, Chassériau’s style and subject matter began to show the influence of Ingres’s rival, Delacroix, and he began deliberately attempting to combine the rhythmical linear qualities of Ingres with the colouristic methods of the Romantic master. His 15 Othello etchings (1844) and his paintings of Moorish and Jewish life following his trip to North Africa (1846) suggest Delacroix, though Chassériau added an exotic quality of his own. He was also important in the revival of monumental allegorical and religious painting in France, though few of those works survive intact.
