Life of ROBERT LEFÈVRE


 Advertisements

 
  French painter. He was the son of a Bayeux draper and originally worked as a law clerk before learning to paint, possibly in the studio of Pierre de Lesseline in Caen. Lefèvre quickly made a reputation for himself and established a sizeable practice in Normandy. About 1784 he went to Paris and entered the studio of Jean-Baptiste Regnault, where he formed a close friendship with the artist and critic Charles-Paul Landon.
  He made a name with mythological subjects and was soon, rather over-hastily, being compared as a portrait painter to David and Grard by his contemporaries. After Napoleon came to the throne Lefèvre was entrusted to paint state portraits of the Emperor and his family.
