About

Jean-Baptiste Greuze (French, 1725 – 1805) Portrait of a man Sanguine on paper 16 x 12 in. (40.8 x 30.7cm.) This has been expertised by the Cabinet de Bayser, Paris Behind glass in a simple black painted wood frame with chips. Jean-Baptiste Greuze was a French painter of portraits, genre scenes, and history painting. He is generally said to have formed his own talent; at an early age his inclinations, though thwarted by his father, were encouraged by a Lyonnese artist named Grandon, or Grondom, who enjoyed during his lifetime considerable reputation as a portrait-painter.
