This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Leon Cogniet was born in Paris. In 1812, he entered the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he studied under Pierre-Narcisse Guérin at the same time as Delacroix and Géricault.  In 1817 he won the Prix de Rome and was a resident at the Villa Medici from 1817 to 1822.

His first picture of note was Marius Among the Ruins of Carthage (1824). He decorated several ceilings in the Louvre and the Halle de Godiaque in the Hôtel de Ville, Paris, and a chapel in the church of Madeleine.

At first he painted in classical style, but later adopted the methods of the Romanticists.

He died in Paris in 1880.
