Painting by Ary Scheffer (1795-1858 ) Portrait of two young girls
Portrait of two young girls, oil on oakwood panel, signed Ary Scheffer 1795-1858 Dutch-French romantic painter. He studied at the École des Beaux-Arts as a pupil of Pierre-Narcisse Guérin. His brothers followed them later. Scheffer started exhibiting at the Salon de Paris from 1812 on. He started to become recognized in 1817 and in 1819 he was asked to make a portrait of the Marquis de Lafayette. When Scheffer left Guérin's studio, Romanticism had come into vogue in France, with such painters as Xavier Sigalon, Eugène Delacroix and Théodore Géricault. Scheffer did not show much affinity with their work and developed his own style. Scheffer was also an accomplished portrait painter, finishing 500 portraits in total. His subjects included composers Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt, the Marquis de la Fayette, Pierre-Jean de Béranger, Alphonse de Lamartine, Charles Dickens, Duchess de Broglie,Talleyrand and Queen Marie Amélie.
