Fernand Cormon (1845-1924 ) was a French painter born in Paris. He became a pupil of Alexandre Cabanel, Eugene Fromentin, and Jean-Francois Portaels, and one of the leading historical painters of modern France. At an early age he attracted attention for the perceived sensationalism in his art, although for a time his powerful brush dwelled with particular delight on scenes of bloodshed, such as the Murder in the Seraglio (1868) and the Death of Ravara, Queen of Lanka.   more from wikipedia »
