Alexandre Cabanel, born in  Montpellier, France on September 28, 1823, was a tremendously popular painter who personified official academic art at the top of the Salon hierarchy and with his contemporary Bouguereau stood as the antithesis of progressive movements, including impressionism.  Alexandre entered drawing school as a boy and continued at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in 1840 under Picot.  Soon after his debut at the Salon, he won the Second Prix de Rome (1845) with Chri (showing 500 of 5198 characters).
