Life of CHARLES-GABRIEL GLEYRE


 Advertisements

 
  Swiss painter, active mainly in Paris, where he enjoyed a successful career, particularly with anecdotal scenes, sometimes in an antique setting, and portraits. He was a renowned teacher and when Delaroche closed down his teaching studio in 1843, the majority of his students transferred to Gleyre. He taught Whistler and several of the impressionists — Bazille, Monet, Renoir, and Sisley — and although his own paintings were conventional, he encouraged open-air painting. Renoir, however, said that his main strength as a teacher was that he left his pupils pretty much to their own devices . Gleyre closed his studio in 1864 because of an eye ailment.
