Biography  
Antoine Falardeau


Antoine Sebastien Falardeau, later known as Le Chevalier Falardeau, trained as an artist in Quebec. He was sent by his master Robert Todd to study in Italy in 1846, and developed a growing reputation as a skilful copyist. His work was noticed in Florence by the Duke of Parma and from then he made incredible leaps in social rank. He married a niece of Pope Pius IX and bought a Florentine Renaissance palace where he received the Empress of Russia, royalty and the aristocracy who came to admire his works.
