Dans l’atelier de Simon-Claude Constant-Dufeux

Ghoche, Ralph

The book chapter is focused on the architectural training of the architect and decorative artist, Jules Bourgoin (1838-1908). Using archival collections at the Institut national d'histoire de l’art, I described the intellectual and artistic environment of the École des Beaux-Arts atelier of Simon-Claude Constant-Dufeux (1801-1871) through the eyes of his pupil Bourgoin, and demonstrated the way in which Bourgoin’s turn to ornament derived from the pedagogy and artistic doctrine presented in the atelier.
