See also:October 1843, was the son of
See also:Henri Victor
See also:Regnault (q.v.) . On leaving school he successively entered the studios of Montfort, Lamothe and
See also:Cabanel, was beaten for the
See also:Grand Prix (1863) by Layraud and Montchablon, and in 1864 exhibited two portraits in no wise remarkable at the
See also:Salon . In 1866, however, he carried off the Grand Prix with a
See also:work of unusual force and distinction—"
See also:Thetis bringing the Arms forged by
See also:Vulcan to Achilles " (School of the
See also:Fine Arts) . The past in Italy did not
See also:touch him, but his illustrations to Wey's Rome show how observant he was of actual
See also:life and
See also:manners; even his " Automedon " (School of Fine Arts), executed in obedience to Academical regulations, was but a lively recollection of a
See also:race . At Rome, moreover, Regnault came into contact with the
See also:modern Hispano-
See also:Italian school, a school highly materialistic and inclined to regard even the human subject only as one amongst many
See also:sources whence to obtain amusement for the
See also:eye . The vital, if narrow, energy of this school told on Regnault with ever-increasing force during the few remaining years of his life . In 1868 he had sent to the Salon a life-
See also:size portrait of a
See also:lady in which he had made one of the first attempts to render the actual character of fashionable modern life . While making a tour in Spain, he saw Prim pass at the
See also:head of his troops, and received that lively image of a military demagogue which he afterwards put on
See also:canvas, somewhat to the displeasure of his subject . But this work made an
See also:appeal to the
See also:imagination of the public, whilst all the later productions of Regnault were addressed exclusively to the eye . After a further
See also:flight to Africa, abridged by the necessities of his position as a pensioner of the school of Rome, he painted "
See also:Judith," then (187o) "
See also:Salome," and, as a work due from the
See also:Roman school, despatched from
See also:Tangier the large canvas, " Execution without
See also:Hearing under the Moorish
See also:Kings," in which the painter had played with the
See also:blood of the victim as if he were a jeweller toying with rubies . The war arose, and found Regnault foremost in the devoted ranks of Buzenval, where he fell on the 19th of
See also:January 1871 . See Correspondance de H .
