Georges Antoine Rochegrosse
Rochegrosse, 19th C French oil painting, 'Moses being taken to the pharaoh'



Georges Antoine Rochegrosse (French, 1859 – 1938) La Fille du Pharaon apporte au Palais le petit Moise (The Pharoah’s daughter carrying the baby Moses to the Palace) Oil on board 8.5/8 x 10.1/2in. (21.8 x 27cm.) Provenance: Marambat-Malafosse Atelier Rochegrosse, Toulouse Georges Antoine Rochegrosse was born at Versailles and studied in Paris with Jules Joseph Lefebvre and Gustave Clarence Rodolphe Boulanger. His themes are generally historical, and he treated them on a colossal scale and in an emotional naturalistic style, with a distinct revelling in horrible subjects and details. He made his Paris Salon début in 1882 with Vitellis traîné dans les rues de Rome par la populace. He followed this the year afterwards with Andromaque, which won that year's prestigious Prix du Salon. There followed La Jacquerie, Le mort de Babylone, The death of the Emperor Geta, and Barbarian ambassadors at the Court of Justinian, all of which exemplify his strong and spirited but sensational and often brutal painting. He was elected an Officer of the Legion of Honor in 1892 and received the medal of honor in 1906 for The Red Delight. Rochegrosse also illustrated several books. Some of the drawings for these illustrations are in the Department of Prints and Drawings at the British Museum, London. He lived his final years in Algeria, but returned to Paris where he died and is buried in Montparnasse Cemetery.
