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.

Georges Rouault completed his primary education in 1885 and was apprenticed to stained-glass artists – first the Tamonis, then Hirsch. He received a direct offer from Albert Besnard for stained-glass windows for the School of Pharmacy to be made from his design sketches, but he refused out of loyalty to his employer. He was encouraged to consider painting as a career, having been introduced to the appreciation of art by his grandfather, Alexandre Champdavoine, who, modest white-collar worker though he was, knew and admired Honoré Daumier, Gustave Courbet, and Édouard Manet. Rouault achieved entry to the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1891, first in Elie Delaunay’s studio, then in Gustave Moreau’s (where he met Henri Matisse, Albert Marquet, Rudolf Lehmann, Henri Evenepoel, and others). Though he failed twice at the Prix de Rome, he won the Prix Chenavard in 1894 and, by 1900, he had obtained a mention and a bronze medal. In 1903, as Gustave Moreau’s executor, he became the curator of the Musée Gustave Moreau in Paris....
