1767-1849

Swiss Romanticism Painter

Jacques-Laurent Agasse was born on April 10, 1767, in Geneva, Switzerland. He was the son of a clockmaker and showed a talent for art from a young age. After receiving his initial training in Geneva, he went on to study in Paris and then traveled extensively throughout Europe. In 1798, Agasse moved to England and quickly became popular with the country's wealthy aristocracy, who commissioned him to paint portraits of their horses and dogs.

Agasse was known for his meticulous attention to detail, which is evident in his paintings of animals. He was also skilled in capturing the character and personality of his subjects, which helped to make his portraits of horses and dogs particularly popular. In addition to his portraits, Agasse was also known for his landscapes, which were often painted in an idealized, romantic style.

In 1805, Agasse was elected as a member of the Royal Academy of Arts, which was a great honor at the time. He was also a founding member of the Society of Painters in Water Colours. Despite his success, Agasse remained humble and was widely regarded as one of the kindest and most generous artists of his time.

Agasse continued to paint and exhibit his works until his death in 1849. His paintings are highly valued today and can be found in many prestigious collections, including the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
