This large painting was first shown to a broad public on the 15th of May 1843 at the Salon of Paris (see our additional images with clips from the Salon exhibition catalogue and the book "Romain Cazes (1808-1881) /peintre secret du Second Empire", Montauban, 1996).

Jean-Francois-Etienne-Joseph Victor (called Romain) Cazes was born in 1808 (and not in 1810 as listed in Thieme-Becker!) in Saint-Beat/Haute-Garonne, France and died in 1881 in Bagneres-de-Luchon/Haute Garonne. He was second of six sons of poet and archaeologist Victor Cazes. Cazes' artistic career began upon his entering the studio of Joseph Roques in Toulouse. In 1829 he became a pupil of the famous J.-A.-D. Ingres in Paris (Ingres' strong influence is clearly seen in our painting!). In his initial period Cazes was mainly a painter of portraits and religious scenes that he showed regularly from 1835 at the Parisian Salon. At that period he had already gained a broader recognition: two of his works (portraits of Louise-Marie-Therese-Mathilde d'Orleans, princess de Bourbon-Conde and of Louis-Joseph de Bourbon, prince de Conde) were acquired in 1836 and 1837 respectively for the Musee du Chateau in Versailles. In the following period the artist painted a number of small religious paintings without, however, receiving any significant commissions.
During a stay in his native Haute-Garonne he received a commission from the abbot Andre Carrere to decorate a small church of Saint-Mamet, followed by another commission for paintings for a church in Bagneres-de-Luchon. The success of these works brought him a great deal of new commissions in the South France and in four Parisian churches (Notre-Dame-de-Cignacourt, St. Ignace, St. Francois-Xavier and Eglise de la Trinite).
The last important (and unfinished due to his unexpected death) commission of Cazes was his working on the decoration of the church Notre-Dame in Bordeaux. His artistic estate came in the beginning of the 20th century to Museum Ingres (Fond Romain Cazes) in Ingres' native town Montauban (our additional images show three of Cazes' works housed in this museum). Another work by him is on view in Louvre, namely "The coronation of the Holy Mary" (Louvre's compartment "Sully", section 60). In 1858 the artist was awarded with Legion d'Honneur.
