Jean-Baptiste Greuze was a French painter known especially for his portraits, genre and historical paintings. Since his father was initially against an artistic education, Greuze initially had to educate mainly autodidactically. The then-famous portrait painter Grandon became aware of Greue's talent and was finally able to change his father. Thus, the boy was initially allowed to move with him as Grandon's students to Lyon. Later, on his recommendation, he went to the art academy in Paris at the age of 25. During his time at the academy, Greuze barely managed to attract the attention of his teachers and his pictures were initially only moderately successful. One of his more well-known early works was "Father of the Family Preaching the Bible to Children." To deepen his studies and to prove to his critics, Greuze set off for Italy together with the painter Abbé Louis Gougenot. For Gougenot the journey should be a complete success. Greuze could not compare with it. He himself found the stays in Rome and Florence uninteresting.

Greedy's relationship with the art academy was generally difficult. He exhibited several times both in the Paris Salon and at the Academy with ever greater success. At the peak of his career in 1765, he exhibited 13 works simultaneously, including "La Bonne Mère" and "La Malediction Paternelle". He always ignored the request of the Academy, he should finally submit a trial. The Academy responded by giving it an exhibition ban until it met the requirement. Greuze always wished to be recognized as a history painter. However, the Academy honored him only as a genre painter, because the historical motives were in her opinion not his parade discipline. The incensed Greuze so much that he refused many years to exhibit there.

Gray pictures were between the 1760s and 70s to the most expensive in France. But the extravagant lifestyle, the embezzlement by his future ex-wife and the speculation with Assignaten left him nothing in the end. In his last years he had to stay afloat as a drawing teacher. His most famous student was Constance Mayer. The left him in the end, however, for his biggest competitor Pierre Paul Prud'hon . © Meisterdrucke
