Artist Jean Baptiste Mauzaisse Born in Corbeil, he began studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in 1803. His first painting, L'Arabe pleurant son coursier (The Arab Mourning his Steed), won him a first class medal at the exhibition at the Salon in 1812. Mauzaisse's specialty was painting historical subjects, especially battle scenes, but he also painted portraits.[1] In 1822, he was commissioned to decorate several ceilings in the Louvre. He died in Paris. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Baptiste_Mauzaisse #art #painting #classic #mythology
