Antoni Stanisław Brodowski (26 December 1784 – 31 March 1832) was a
Polish Neo-classicist painter and pedagogue. Brodowski was born in
Warsaw but moved to Paris to study under Jean Augustin and
Jacques-Louis David, later Brodowski's idol. He also became a pupil
of Anne-Louis Girodet and Francois Gerard. His compositions are very
large-scale with many figures, and often based on themes from
Antiquity. Brodowski is also well-known for his decorative paintings
within palaces and theatres in Warsaw.
