Dominique Louis Papety (1815-1849 ) was a French painter. He studied in his birthplace under Augustin Aubert before entering the Paris studio of Leon Cogniet. Winning the 1836 Prix de Rome, from then until 1841 he stayed at the Villa Medici in Rome, igniting his lifelong interest in Greek and Roman art (he visited Greece in 1846 and 1847, and a large number of his later paintings show similarities with the French Neo-Grec style made popular by Jean-Leon Gerome and others).   more from wikipedia »
