Artists Biography

Gustave Jean Jacquet

French, 1846-1909
Gustave Jean Jacquet studied under Bouguereau, forsaking many other masters and the beginning of his career was very much in the manner of his teacher. Jacquet debuted at the Salon in 1865 with an allegory titled “The Day Dream”. However, the following year, Jacquet moved towards the type of genre scenes that would consecrate his reputation and so he began giving the Salons canvases of small dimensions in which he evoked, with conscientious concern of the tiniest detail, the elegant life of the 16th, 17th and 18th Centuries.

In 1868 he won a Third Class medal and around the same time he devoted himself to portraits, amusing himself sometimes by clothing his models in the sparkling outfits of the 16th Century.
