Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres was the son of the painter, sculptor, and musician Jean-Marie-Joseph Ingres, who, while directing him towards music, at the same time gifted him with the basic principles of drawing. Such was the potential shown by Ingres for this particular artistic form that his father sent him to study in Toulouse. The young student spent time in the studios of Guillaume-Joseph Roques (a pupil of Joseph-Marie Vien), the sculptor Jean-Pierre Vigan, and the landscape painter Jean Briant. In 1796, Ingres went to Paris, and his father found him a place in the studio of Jacques-Louis David. Since he received scarcely any money from his family, he was forced to finance himself from his musical abilities and became a violinist in the orchestra for a theatrical farce. In 1800, he competed for the Prix de Rome but gained only second place after Jean-Pierre Granger, though the following year he won with ...
