|La Mal'aria, 1850, Ernest Hebert, an Italian peasant family |
fleeing to safety from disease (and apparently mosquitos).
|Ernest Hebert Self-portrait, 1834|
painted at the age of seventeen.
The likeness may be somewhat
idealized--more man than boy.
|Ernest Hebert, 1834, Benjamin Roland,|
captures very well the adolescent
intensity of his young friend and fellow
student at the Ecole des Beaux Arts.
|Le Tasse in Prison, 1839, Ernest Hebert. Though only twenty-two, this |
young academician was off and running on a career of sixty-eight years.
|In contrast, the much more well-known|
Eugene Delacroix's 1839 attempt at the
same subject seems lifeless and dull.
(He would have been about 50 at the time.)
|Ophelia, 1876, Ernest Hebert, bears the|
mark of possible influences from the
Pre-Raphaelites across the channel.
|Slave Sleeping under the Portico |
of a Temple, 1842,
|The Antoine Auguste Ernest Hebert Museum, Paris|
|The Hebert Museum, Grenoble, (southeastern) France,|
--the house in which he was born and the more Romantic of the two.
