Alphonse Legros Biography

Alphonse Legros was born 8 May 1837 and died 8 December 1911. He was a French born, later British painter and sculptor. In 1863 he moved to London and later took citizenship.
Legros's paintings reflect his engagement with classicism in the late 186os as he moved away from realism to embrace a more eclectic style based on Old Master influences and study of the nude.
