Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jean-Pierre Cortot was a French sculptor. Cortot was born and died in Paris. He was educated at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, and took the Prix de Rome in 1809, residing in the Villa Medici in Rome from 1810 to 1813. Cortot worked in an austere, correct, academic neo-classical style, heir to both classic French models from the late 18th Century, and the Greco-Roman tradition. His art took on a more romantic expression towards the end of his life. Appointed a professor at the Ecole, as the successor of Charles Dupaty, he was made a member of the Acad mie des beaux-arts in 1825. He was also made an Officer of the L gion d'honneur in 1841show more
