Louis Gauffier
(French, 1762 - 1801)
This person is associated with: Neoclassicism

French neoclassical painter. He trained under Hughes Taraval.

He won the Prix de Rome in 1784 for his The Woman of Canaan at the Feet of Christ.

He mostly stayed in Rome until the Revolution when some anti-French riots forced him to move to Florence. There he painted mostly portraits of travelling gentlemen and some landscapes, which is unusual for a neoclacissist.
