Biography   Ambroise Louis Garneray


Ambroise Louis Garneray (1783-1857): Born in Paris in 1783, the son of Jean Francoise Garneray (himself a student of Jacques-Louis David). Most of the Garneray family were professional artists, but Ambroise (known as Louis) persuaded his parents to let him go to sea aged thirteen. Taken Prisoner on the French vessel 'Belle Poule' in 1806 and not given the privilege of parole he was sent to the prison hulk 'Prothee' in Portsmouth Harbour. From 1812 he was allowed to live ashore in a parole area from which he painted a series of views of prison hulks and shipping in Portsmouth Harbour, released in 1814. On returning to France Garneray had a successful career as a marine artist and became director of the Museum of Fine Arts in Rouen in 1833.
