French, 18th century, male.

Died c. 1773.

Draughtsman, copyist. Mythological subjects, religious subjects, allegorical subjects, genre scenes, landscapes.

Little is known of Robert Ango's life. He is thought to have worked with Giuseppe Grisoni and above all to have been a friend of Jean-Honoré Fragonard. He was essentially a copyist, basing his work on that of Fragonard, Hubert Robert, Rembrandt and Michelangelo. No works of his own have been identified. A. Ananoff, an expert on the circle of François Boucher, discovered that some drawings thought to be Fragonard originals were really the work of Ango. They do not have Fragonard's lightness of touch and line but appear heavy and confused. Ananoff made the same discovery with regard to drawings by Hubert Robert, which are self-evidently copies by Ango. Ango signed these drawings with an A placed after the date, or he noted the original artist's name, but did not imitate his signature. Most of these copies, Ananoff states, date ...

Studied under Carlo Maria de Giudici and was counselled by the Florentine painter Giuliano Traballesi to whom he acted as an assistant. He worked in Milan, Florence, Rome, Naples and, in 1801, in Paris. When the French arrived in Italy, Bonaparte chose him to assist the painter Gros in the selection of artistic works destined to be housed in the Louvre. Napoleon also commissioned him to paint his portrait and was so satisfied with the results that, in 1805, he appointed Appiani as the official painter of the imperial court when he became Emperor Napoleon I. Following Napoleon's removal from power, Andrea Appiani lost his imperial sinecure; worse, a stroke in 1815 obliged him to sell his personal art collection.
