French painter, the winner of the Prix de Rome in 1845. He ranked as one of the most successful and influential academic painters of the period, concentrating on nudes and portraits, and one of the sternest opponents against Impressionists. His painting, The Birth of Venus, is noted as his best known work and typical of the titillating nudes at which he excelled. In 1863, it was purchased by Napoleon III, who then gave him several prestigious commissions, including the directorship of Ecole Des Beaux.
