Nanteuil, c Lestin

Resource Toolbox

a French artist noted for his contributions to sacred art, was born at Rome in 1813. He studied under Langlois and Ingres, and exhibited his first work, a Holy Family, in 1833, followed by A Beggar (1834), and Christ Healing the Sick (1837); but he was mainly employed as a lithographer, and in the course of about thirty years executed more than 2000 vignettes for literary and musical publications. Among his more recent paintings are, The Temptation (1851): The Vine (1853): Souvenirs of the Past and The Kiss of Judas (1858), the latter after Van Dyck, of which he also produced an admirable engraving. He died at Paris in 1873.
