"Antoine Roux, Pair Of Watercolors,"
ANGE-JOSEPH-ANTOINE ROUX (MARSEILLE 1765-1835) Pair of watercolors, "Les Voiliers" Ink, watercolor and wash on paper 14.5 x 19 cm Ange-Joseph Antoine Roux is a French hydrographer and marine painter born in Marseille March 6, 1765 and died in the same city on April 20, 1835. From a Marseille dynasty of marine painters and hydrographers, Ange-Joseph Antoine Roux was the son of Joseph Roux (1725-1789), hydrographer to the king and painter of navy, and Marie-Ursule Demolin. He began very early to work in the family hydrographer's shop, located in the Old Port of Marseille, and to design the many buildings that stay in the port. Later, he will produce several reconstructions of naval battles as well as numerous ex-votos. Antoine Roux has sometimes been considered the inventor of the "ship portrait" in France, influenced by the many English sailors present in the port of Marseille. On April 27, 1790, in the Saint-Laurent church in Marseille, he married Rose Elisabeth Gabrielle Catelin, daughter of Gabriel Catelin, ship captain, and Marie Rose Abeille. He is the father of five children, all of whom will produce portraits of boats.
