(1733 - 1808)
Hubert Robert was active/lived in France. Hubert Robert is known for historical scene, architecture and portrait painting.
An artist whose subjects ranged from portraits to classical ruins,
Hubert Robert is also remembered for the liveliness of his personality,
his prolific drawings and paintings, and his adventurous spirit.
Among his works are romantic, allegorical
landscape scenes, often of the French countryside, and also views
of Rome and Paris. One of them, Grand Galerie of the Louvre in Ruins was a fantasy, but another, Hotel Dieu in Flames, was from an on-site sketch of the event.
He exhibited numerous times at the Salons, and his work was very
popular with aristocratic, prominent persons, likely helped by the fact
that his father, Nicolas Robert, was an upper-servant to the Marquis of
Choiseul-Stainvil ... Displaying 750 of 4022 characters.
