Life of ARY SCHEFFER


 Advertisements

 
  Dutch painter, engraver, and book illustrator, active for almost all his career in Paris. His work was immensely popular in his lifetime, but is now generally considered sentimental. Early in his career he favoured literary themes (Francesca da Rimini, Wallace Collection, London 1835, and other versions ), but later he turned to mawkishly treated religious subjects (SS. Augustine and Monica, National Gallery, London, 1854, and other versions). He also painted many portraits. His work is well represented in the museum at Dordrecht, his native town.
