Ary Scheffer

(b Dordrecht, 10 Feb 1795; d Argenteuil, 15 June 1858).

Dutch painter, sculptor and lithographer, active in France. He became a French citizen in 1850. He received his earliest training in the studio of his parents, Johann-Bernhard Scheffer (1764–1809) and Cornelia Scheffer (1769–1839), who were both artists, as was his brother Henri Scheffer (1798–1862). He then attended the Amsterdam Teeken-Academie (1806–9). At the first Exhibition of Living Masters in Amsterdam in 1808 he showed Hannibal Swearing to Avenge the Death of his Brother Hasdrubal (Dordrecht, Dordrechts Mus.), a predominantly monochrome and loosely executed painting, which reveals his familiarity with the Dutch pictorial tradition.
