Paul Delaroche 1797-1856

Paul Delaroche (1797-1856) was a significant figure in French 19th-century art. Reproductive engravings after his pictures helped make them familiar throughout the western world and his work was the first to be extensively photographed. Shortly after his death, however, he was largely forgotten, and it is only recently that his pictures have again attracted popular and academic interest. This publication marks the bicentenary of Delaroche’s death. It represents an in-depth study of many of his most famous paintings, which form part of the Wallace Collection. These include the historical scenes "The Princes in the Tower" and the "Execution of Lady Jane Grey".
