Happy Birthday especially to my husband Craig…and also Theodore Chasseriau!! Born today in 1819, this French painter of the Romantic period was a student of Ingres and also inspired by Delacroix. He borrowed subject matter from both artists, including Shakespearean figures, Biblical scenes, historical information from North Africa, portraits, etc. In addition to paintings, Chasseriau also drew with lead pencil, as Ingres did. The Angel (below) was painted in 1840.
