TASSAERT Octave (b. 1800, Paris, d. 1874, Paris) Nationality : French

Painter and printmaker, part of a French family of artists of Flemish origin, son of Jean-Joseph-Francois Tassaert, who worked mainly in Paris, and grandson of Jean-Pierre-Antoine Tassaert, one of the leading portrait sculptors working in Berlin in the late 18th century. As a child Octave worked with his brother Paul Tassaert (d. 1855), producing engravings, but he later turned to painting and from 1817 to 1825 studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, first under Alexis-Francois Girard (1787-1870) and then Guillaume Lethiere. In 1823 and 1824 he tried unsuccessfully to win the Prix de Rome, an early failure that greatly disheartened him.
