The Execution of Lady Jane Grey 1833, Paul Delaroche
The Execution of Lady Jane Grey 1833, Paul Delaroche

Paul Delaroche was one of the most celebrated artists of his time. His large history paintings received wide acclaim at the Paris annual exhibition, then dominated by the conflicting influences of Neo-classicism and Romanticism.

Such was Delaroche’s success that it often exceeded that of his contemporaries,Ingres and Delacroix. His paintings combine Ingres’s highly finished style with Delacroix’s historical themes to great effect, resembling stage productions where dramatic scenes are being acted.
