Philippe HENNEQUIN (Lyon, 1762 - Leuze-en-Hainaut, 1833) - Portrait of a man

Philippe Hennequin studied with Nonnotte, H. Taraval, Gois senior, N.G. Brenot and David. He went to Rome to work and took part in the first insurrections of the Roman Revolution. He had to return to Paris, where he painted the July 14th Federation. A revolutionary with extreme ideas, he moved to Lyon, where he was pursued and imprisoned after the end of the Terror and the fall of Robespierre. He escaped to Paris, where he later took part in Babeuf's Conspiration des égaux. With the Restoration and the return of the Bourbons, he moved to Liège, then Tournai, where he ran an art school.

He painted mythological, historical and allegorical subjects in the style of David, with a fierce, violent hand. He also painted portraits and landscapes, and left numerous drawings in pencil, pen and wash. He also lithographed Le remords d'Oreste after his own work, and published Collection d'esquisses et de parties de compositions de M. Hennequin, lithographiées de sa propre main in 1825.
