About

Louis-Félix Delarue (1730-1777) Mars and Venus Signed lower right Black ink and brown ink wash on paper 13.5 x 15 cm Framed : 29 x 31 cm The warrior with a dog at his feet is easily identified as Mars, god of war in the roman era, he holds the hand of his beloved Venus, goddess of Love (as love and war go together). The delicate and very personnal style is typical of Louis-Félix Delarue, who was a quite eccentric artistic figure, who has drawn his own vision of Mythology and Ancient history in a pre-romantic mood, often pessimistic and desperate as if he had felt he was living in the last years of an historic era. Louis-Félix Delarue was born on October 19, 1730 in Paris, where he died on June 24 1777. He was a draughtsman and sculptor, elder brother of Philibert-Benoît de la Rue, he was a pupil of Lambert-Sigisbert Adam. Winner of the Prix ​​de Rome in 1750 , he obtained the certificate of student sculptor of the Academy of Rome on September 1754 . He was admitted to the Academy of Saint Luca in Rome in 1760.
