VINCENT, François-André
(b. 1746, Paris, d. 1816, Paris)

The Daughter of Ariovistus Made Prisoner by Caesar

Oil on canvas, 46 x 53 cm
Private collection

This rare subject is taken from the book of Bellum Gallico (Gallic War) by Julius Caesar (ca. 52-51 BC). The painting can be dated to the end of the 1770s when the painter was inspired by rare literary themes and painted from them several canvases with very free technique.
