Jerome-Martin Langlois Wall Art

Jérôme-Martin Langlois (Born in 1830) was born in Paris, France. He received his training in Jacques-Louis David’s studio, and became one of his favorite students and assisted on several of his pictures. David was a leading Neoclassical French painter. The two painters worked together on several important projects, including Napoleon crossing the Alps and Leonidas at Thermopylae. Langlois's father was a miniature painter, yet he never wanted his son to take up art as a profession. However, Langlois persisted, and trained with David. David's style strongly influenced him. David’s mythological and historical paintings were characterized by cool, polished rendering of form and severe settings. In 1805 Langlois won the 2nd prize at the Prix de Rome and in 1809 he won the 1st prize. In the 1810s he moved to Rome. From 1806 to 1837 he regularly exhibited at the Salon and won the 2nd prize in 1817 and in 1819 he won the first prize.

Three years later, he became a Knight of the Legion of Honour. 1824 found him in Brussels where he painted the portrait of David, which was exhibited in 1831. Langlois was nominated member of the Académie des Beaux-Arts. His art is available in many museums throughout France, including the Palace of Versailles, the Musee du Louvre, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Angers. Langlois’ art continue to attract viewers and they are highly priced by many collectors. Today they adorn the walls of many galleries, institutions and homes all over the world. Langlois died in 1838 in Paris, France.
