Looting of a Gallo-Roman Villa, Painting Signed Georges Rochegrosse

About

Looting of a Gallo-Roman villa by Huns horsemen. Oil on canvas, signed G.Rochegrosse, dated 1894. Georges Antoine Rochegrosse (1859-1938), from an intellectual and artistic background, was a brilliant student of the Académie Julian, and afterwards that of the Beaux Arts. The prize at the Salon of 1883, allowed him to discover Italy, then various European capitals. Passionate about archeology and history, he was very impressed by the work of Jules Michelet, with his biases and his approximations. Rochegrosse is known for his paintings depicting violent scenes, shown to their paroxysm (Andromache 1883, Vitellius dragged in the streets of Rome, the ball of ardents, etc ...) Here, the dramatic intensity of the scene is reinforced by the presence of the two lying bodies, and the desperate attempt of the mistress of the premises, to escape her captors. Attila (?) and his riders attend the scene with indifference. Note the concern for an "archaeological" description of the clothing, architectural, and decorative details of the painter, who accustomed visitors to the Salon to see paintings retracing bloody pages of history of different civilizations. cf. : exhibition of Moulins in 2013 on "the glories of decadence" J.Valmy-Baysse, biography about the painter, 1910 Benezit, volume 9, p.24 Museums: Algiers, Amiens, Grenoble, Lille, Leipzig, Moulins, Mulhouse, Paris, Beautiful giltwood frame, inscription on the back "belongs to Miss Messier Rauschenberg, St Gerand le Puy" Chassis of the Hardy-Alan House, rue du Cherche-Midi.
