Alexandre Dominique Denuelle

Alexandre-Dominique Denuelle was a noted decorative painter and pupil of Paul
Delaroche (1797–1856) and (Jacques-) Félix Duban (1797–1870) in the 1830s, and later collaborated with Hippolyte Flandrin (1809–1864). He traveled extensively through Italy, recording the ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii and copying the
paintings of thirteenth- and fourteenth century masters such as Cimabue, Giotto,
and Zuccari. He was elected the paintermember of the French Comité des
Monuments Historiques and documented the decoration of French cathedrals and
churches, often sending these drawings to the Paris Salon. Denuelle carried out an
enormous program of decorative fresco painting in ecclesiastical, public, and private buildings all over France, with specific work known at Saint-Germain-des-Près, the Grand Gallery of the Louvre, and the Abbey of Saint-Denis in Paris. He died in Florence. (JGK)
