Jean-Baptiste Oudry (artist)


Acerca de

Oudry made an excellent living filling commissions for noble patrons, especially King Louis XV, whose favor he won by creating hunting scenes with realistic drama. Eighteenth-century critics interpreted Oudry’s animal paintings as if they were history subjects and judged them as they would scenes of human conflict and emotion.
