Vases grecs et étrusques, (Greek and Etruscan vases)

Alexandre-Isidore Leroy De Barde (1777–1828)
Louvre Museum

Viscount Alexandre-Isadore Leroy de Barde was born in Montreuil, Pas-de-Calais, France in 1777, and developed an early interest in art, particularly still-life painting. He appears to have been an entirely self-taught amateur, but was recognized as a virtuoso while still in his 20’s.
