Venus And Adonis

Jean-Hugues Taraval (27 February 1729 – 19 October 1785) was a French painter.[1][2]

Taraval was born in Paris, the son of the French painter Guillaume Taraval, who moved his family to Stockholm in 1732 to work on the decoration of the new Royal Palace. Initially a pupil of his father, Hugues returned to Paris after his father's death in 1750.[1] There he studied with Jean-Baptiste Marie Pierre and Charles-André van Loo.

In 1756, he won the Prix de Rome with Job Mocked by his Wife, now in the Musée des beaux-arts de Marseille. In Rome he was a pupil of Charles-Joseph Natoire at the Académie française.
