Jean-Simon Berthélemy
(French, 1743 - 1811)
This person is associated with: Neoclassicism
French neoclassical painter, son of Jean-Joseph, a sculptor.

He was a pupil of Noël Hallé. He failed at the Prix de Rome in 1764 with Cléobis et Biton conduisent le char de leur mère au temple de Junon (awarded to Callet), but won it in 1767 for his Alexander Cutting the Gordian Knot.

His style was at first influenced by his master, with charming rococo subjects, then he switched to more severe works in the 1780's with the arrival of Neoclassicism.

He was appointed academician in 1781 and professor of the newly created Ecole des Beaux-arts in 1805.
