Biography  
Louis Jean Desprez


In 1783, the French artist Desprez's work was noted by Gustav III, who sought to be responsible for the scorecorations of the historical drafts he planned. The king offered Desprez extremely generous conditions and the artist moved to Sweden in 1784. His first scorecorations became a sensational success to the premiere group of "Queen Christina". For ten years, he continued to create magnificent theater decks, architectural drawings and historical paintings for the enlightened Swedish monarch.
