Charles-Gabriel Gleyre

1806-1874 France/Romanticism

 

Brief Biography-Charles-Gabriel Gleyre was born in Chevilly but spent most of his life in Paris. He studied under Louis Hersent at the École des Beaux-Arts, and Horace Vernet gave him instructions in Italy. In addition, the works of Raphael influenced him much. Gleyre toured the Middle East between 1834 and 1838 before returning to Paris, where he set up his studio and won a medal at the 1840 Paris Salon. When Paul Delaroche stopped teaching in 1843, Gleyre continued with his students. The most notable ones were Whistler, Gérôme, Monet, Lecomte du Nouÿ, Renoir and Sisley. Unfortunately, he ceased working in 1864 due to failing eyesight and died suddenly of a ruptured blood vessel while at an exhibition for the inhabitants of Alsace in 1874.
