FABRE Francois-Xavier (b. 1766, Montpellier, d. 1837, Montpellier) Nationality : French

French painter, printmaker and collector. He was taught by the painter Jean Coustou (1719-91) in Montpellier before entering, in 1783, the studio of David, to whose artistic principles he remained faithful all his life. His career as a history painter began brilliantly when, in 1787, he won the Prix de Rome for Nebuchadnezzar Ordering the Execution of Zedekiah's Children (Paris, Ecole Normale Superieur des Beaux-Arts). This early success was consolidated by the four years he spent at the Academie de France in Rome and by the enthusiastic reception of his Death of Abel (1790; Montpellier, Musee Fabre) at the Salon of 1791.
