1733 Paris 1808

Hubert Robert specialised in both invented and accurate architectural views, which earned him the sobriquet 'Robert des Ruines'. His eleven-year stay in Italy played an important role in this, during which time he was in contact with Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720–1778) and Giovanni Paolo Panini (1691–1765). In 1765 Robert returned to France, where the influence of his older contemporary François Boucher (1703–1770) is also visible in his work.
