Jean Jacques Francois Lebarbier (1738-1826) "La Grotte D'Egerie", important bozzetto, 1770s
This relatively small (38,5x46cm) oil on canvas painting is a bozzetto (preparatory oil study) for a larger oil painting "La Grotte D'Egerie" in Musée des Beaux-Arts of Rouen (see our image nr.13).
Jean Jacques Francois Lebarbier (also Le Barbier, also Le Barbier the Elder) was born on November 11th 1738 in Rouen and, at 17, won first prize for drawing at the city's Académie. Shortly afterwards he travelled to Paris, entering the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture as a student of Jean-Baptiste-Marie Pierre. In 1767-8 he was in Rome, a fact confirmed by a number of dated and inscribed drawings and paintings, including the pen, ink and wash drawing landscape inspired by the gardens of the Villa d'Este at Tivoli (Paris, Ecole N. Sup. B.-a.). He was in Switzerland in 1776, where he spent several years drawing illustrations for Beát Zurlauben's "Tableau de la Suisse ou voyage pittoresque fait dans les treize cantons du corps Helvétique (Paris, 1780-86). In 1780, having returned to France, he was approved (agréé) by the Académie Royale and received (reçu) in 1785 with "Jupiter asleep on Mount Ida (Paris, Ecole N. Sup. B.-a.). Thereafter he regularly exhibited moralistic pictures at the Salon until 1817.
