Biography   Jean-Baptiste Greuze


/ GREUZ /    click to hear
An 18th-century painter of melodramatic genre, morality lessons, female figures and portraits whose subjects included Mozart and Benjamin Franklin, Jean-Baptiste Greuze was born in the Burgundy region of France.  He spent most of his career in Paris, where he was mentored by a portrait artist from Lyon named Grandon (Grondom).  This artist was an advocate for the young Greuze, whose father had discouraged him from following his art talents.  In Paris, Greuze worked from the live model at the Royal Academy.  Gradually his work attracted the attention of members of the nobility such as the family of Madame d'Epinay, a French writer whose love affairs included Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Denis Diderot.
