Portrait de mulâtre, c. 1810 - Francois-Xavier Fabre entered Jacques-Louis Davids Parisian école after an early training under Jean Coustou (1719-1791) in Montpelier. His talents were quickly recognized and he won the Prix de Rome in 1787, 13 years after David himself had won it. Due to his royalist sympathies, he was forced to flee France in 1793, and settled in Florence where he quickly became accepted into the social and artistic circles. As his popularity increased, he turned more and more to producing portraits of the Florentine society and the affluent ex-patriots. Upon his return to France, his importance as a painter was recognized by Charles X who conferred upon him the title of Baron. This importance is reflected by the number of Fabres works which are held in public collections, notably the Louvre, the Uffizi, National Portrait Gallery, London and National Gallery, Scotland with the most extensive collection of his work at the Musee Fabre.
