Biography  
Joseph Paelinck


After having studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent, Joseph Paelinck moved to Paris, where he became a student of Jacques Louis David (1748-1825), leader of the French Classicism movement and Napoleon’s official painter. There, Paelinck perfected the art of historical painting and found a style he would keep his whole career. In 1804, he was awarded a prize for his painting, ‘The judgement of Paris’, which helped him secure a position as a professor at the Ghent Academy of Fine Arts. The institution then allowed him to spend five years in Italy; his most important work from this period being „Rome under Augustus“, which he painted for the Quirinal Palace.
