Louis Devedeux

Louis Devedeux

1820 - 1874

Louis Devedeux studied at the Ecoles des Beaux-Arts in 1836 under P. Delaroche and Descamps. In 1838, his works were exhibited at the Salon de Paris including "Une Chanteuse Espagnole", "Baigneuses Orientales" and "Femmes dans les Jardin de Serial". Both the Musee de Art Moderne in Paris, precursor to the Musee D'Orsay and the Musee des Beaux-Arts in Rennes, France have exhibited his paintings. They have been compared to those of the famed Alphone W. Bouguereau and Alexandre Cabanel both of whom were once his students. "Birth of Venus" is painted in the Salon style of the mid 19th century and is heavily influenced by the subects of classical antiquity and the highly refined technique of the French Academy, which valued photographic realism based upon antique models. Venus was the Roman goddess of love and beauty, who was born of the sea, and washed ashore with the waves onto the island of Cyprus.
