Jean-Baptiste Greuze, 1725-1805, was a French painter. Running through his oil painting finds an apology in the firm and brilliant play of line, in the freshness and vigour of the flesh tints, in the enticing softness of expression, by the alluring air of health and youth. In 1765 the artist reached the zenith of his powers and reputation and was represented with no less than thirteen Jean-Baptiste Greuze paintings. At the Pourtal's sale in 1865, it was no less than 1,000,000 francs for Greuze art. -- The Copyright of Scripts is Reserved by Toperfect.
