Robert Louis-Leopold (b. 1794, La Chaux-de-Fonds, d. 1835, Venezia) Nationality : Swiss

Swiss painter. Robert was the most widely known and respected Swiss painter of the early 19th century. His work blends Neo-classical rigour with Romantic sentimentality and subject-matter, and he was greatly admired by both contemporary and later critics, such as Charles Clement, Theophile Thore and Louis Viardot (1880-83), who likened him to Poussin. His reputation waned towards the end of the century, and his work was not re-evaluated until the 1970s. Robert did not begin his career as an artist but as a merchant. His love of art however triumphed over any other pursuits. In 1810 Robert traveled to Paris to begin his artistic training in earnest.
