GALLAIT Louis (b. 1810, Tournai, d. 1887, Bruxelles) Nationality : Belgian

Belgian painter. Although he came from an impoverished background, he entered the Academie of Tournai in 1823, where he worked first under Cornelis Cels and then under Philippe Auguste Hennequin, a pupil of Jacques-Louis David. Hennequin instilled in him the principles of Neo-classical drawing and had a profound influence on his choice of subject-matter. Gallait's first Classical subject, the Death of Epaminondas (Musee des Beaux-Arts, Tournai), and his many early drawings show this influence clearly. Gallait's first success was with Caesar's Tribute (Museum voor Schone Kunsten, Ghent) exhibited in 1832 at the Salon of Ghent.
