DELAUNAY Jules-Elie (1828-1891) Nationality : French

Jules-Elie Delaunay was a French academic painter. He was born at Nantes in the Loire-Atlantique departement of France. Delaunay studied under Flandrin, and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris under Lamothe. He worked in the classicist manner of Ingres until, after winning the Prix de Rome,when he went to Italy; in 1856, and abandoned the ideal of Raphaelesque perfection. After his return from Rome he was entrusted with many important commissions for decorative paintings, such as the frescoes in the church of St Nicholas at Nantes; the three panels of Apollo, Orpheus and Amphion at the Paris Opera house; and twelve paintings for the great hall of the council of state in the Palais Royal.
