Biography:
Francois Le Moyne’s career began when he won the Prix de Rome in 1711 after studying in Paris. He admired the work of Raphael, Correggio, and Peter Paul Rubens and aspired to paint ceiling decorations in their manner. In his work he blended traditional Baroque influences with Rococo colors and figures. In 1728, King Louis XV commissioned Le Moyne to paint the ceiling of the Hercules Salon at Versailles. Not long after, he was named first painter. However, distressed by excessive work, jealousy, and his wifes’ death, Le Moyne stabbed himself nine times and died in 1737.
