COURT Joseph-Desire (b. 1797, Rouen, d. 1865, Paris) Nationality : French

French painter and museum director. In 1817 he entered the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he studied under Antoine-Jean Gros. In 1821 he won the Prix de Rome with Samson Handed over to the Philistines by Delilah. He began exhibiting at the Salon and showed Scene from the Deluge, painted while he was in Rome, and the Death of Caesar (Paris, Louvre). The latter proved a sensational success. It was initially bought by the Musee du Luxembourg, Paris, and was re-exhibited in 1855 before being sent to the Louvre. The subject derives from Plutarch and shows Antony stirring the Roman citizens to avenge the murder of Caesar. It was praised chiefly for its dramatic composition.
